Beginning later in 2007, LG will pre-load Yahoo! services, including Yahoo! Go for Mobile 2.0, Yahoo! Mail and Yahoo! Messenger on many of its mobile phones.
The recently launched Yahoo! oneSearch, designed to give consumers instant answers on their mobile device, will also be available.
Yahoo! Go 2.0 service looks to redefine the mobile Internet experience for consumers through a unique product design, ability to personalize with content from across Internet and a reinvention of search for the mobile phone through Yahoo! oneSearch. The carousel design of the service makes it simple for consumers to navigate the selection of Yahoo! Go widgets, personal channels for email, local information and maps, news, sports, finance, entertainment, weather, photo sharing and search.
LG mobile phones with Yahoo! services will be available to consumers through both mobile operators and direct distribution channels. In addition, LG and Yahoo! will explore extending Yahoo! services to LG connected consumer electronic devices.
