Yahoo and Samsung step up mobile partnership

Yahoo has announced plans to increase its mobile internet partnership with Samsung in another attempt to wrest dominance from Google.

The companies said that Yahoo Services, which includes Mail, Calendar and other applications, will be available on tens of millions of Samsung devices worldwide starting early next month.

"By making our most popular Yahoo services available on Samsung mobile devices around the world, we are providing consumers with personally relevant mobile internet experiences that make it easy to stay connected to what's important to them and explore the full potential of their device," said David Ko, senior vice president for audience, mobile and local at Yahoo.

"We are thrilled to deepen our relationship with Samsung, and look forward to continuing to drive the global adoption of mobile internet services."

Kenny Lee, vice president of content planning at Samsung, explained that handsets may be released with one or more of Yahoo Services, and that users will be able to complete a selection of tasks, ranging from diary keeping to checking the weather.

"We want to provide our customers with the best possible services designed to enhance their mobile experience," said Lee. "Our relationship with Yahoo continues to grow and benefit our global consumer base."
