A new Internet search system for mobile phone users was announced by Yahoo thus putting Yahoo one step forward of what Google can offer. The system delivers locally relevant answers.
Marco Boerries, senior vice president of Yahoo's Connected Life business unit said: "We are now putting search on every mobile phone that has a browser. We are delivering the results consumers want with just one search, not a list of Web links."
Yahoo, has been working hard in recent months to succeed Google in the fast emerging mobile Web market. With fast developing handsets abilities and their wide use of Web browsers, Internet tries hard to bring search, e-mail, mapping and other online services to phones. The mobile world promises to make a more convenient way to use Internet then computers. OneSearch, as Yahoo’s mobile phone service, serves a list of information, such as news headlines, images from Yahoo's Flickr photos site, business listings, local weather and links to other Web sites.
Users just need to enter a zip code or city name for Yahoo oneSearch and they are delivered local search results Yahoo such as theaters playing a particular movie, user ratings of the film and news headlines related to the movie.
This is somth more complicated how Google gives the same info.
The Internet Media Company is providing oneSearch service to the 85% of existing U.S. mobile phones with Web browsers intending to put Yahoo services on new and upcoming phones.
Yahoo going to feature Yahoo Go software, with oneSearch service, and four of the world's top five mobile handset makers: Nokia, Motorola Inc., Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. and LG Electronics Inc.
