Yahoo Not Stupid, Will Work With Google And Apple OS's


Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO) mobile Chief Marco Boerries has confirmed that it will make versions of its mobile services to run on phone platforms including Google’s (NSDQ: GOOG) Android (when it is up and running) and the iPhone (hinting it will make such an announcement at MacWorld) reports Reuters. A couple of months ago he said that Yahoo had no plans to change its strategy in the face of the Android announcement, and since its strategy is to put its services on as many handsets as possible it makes sense it would work with Android. “Yahoo is ready to demonstrate its commitment to mix and match services of its own with those of rivals in a new, more open strategy…By offering Internet services that work on existing phones rather seeking to compete with mobile phone software of its own, Yahoo can reach hundreds of millions of phone users”, Boerries said. Yahoo’s big announcement at CES was turning its Go mobile application into a widget platform.
