Yahoo Mobilizes Ready

In the ongoing battle between Yahoo and Google, Yahoo is winning on at least one front: Wireless. It is constantly launching new features, and new products to make Yahoo untethered.

yahoo goResourceShelf points to Yahoo Ready, a new utility that brings IM, mail, and contacts back-up. It is part of the Yahoo Go (mobile) offering. Too bad the service only works under a select amount of devices though some of the more popular ones like Motorola RAZR are supported. Still, it supports more devices than the limited number of handsets that can use Yahoo Go.

Elsewhere, MobHappy has a nice post on Yahoo’s ideas about mobile search, and the differences between search on mobile vs. the web–search on mobile uses more words than web search even though its much harder to input, given that the user wants to get it right the first time.

  1. Hi – I’m the product manager responsible for the Y! Ready initiative. A quick clarification: Y! Ready is our initiative to use standards (IMPS, IMAP, SyncML etc) to enable Y! products on mobile. It is not a part of Y! Go for Mobile, an application which brings an optimal, integrated Yahoo! experience to the mobile device.

  2. Following the links in the article, it seems that Go Mobile is only available for the Nokia 60 series and not say the RAZR as mentioned in the article (or am I missing something)?
