Yahoo! services to be available on Blackberry
Posted on 14-Mar-2005 20:57 | Tags Filed under: News



Yahoo! Inc. and Research In Motion (RIM) started a relationship to provide Yahoo! Messenger service to BlackBerry users around the world. Through this relationship, the companies plan to pre-install full-color, graphical Yahoo! Messenger clients on BlackBerry devices in the coming months.

BlackBerry users will be able to access and connect with everyone on their friends list while they are on the go. The companies also intend to provide a further enhanced Yahoo! Mail offering in the future.

The Yahoo! Messenger service on the BlackBerry platform will allow consumers to see which friends are online, send and receive instant messages, have multiple conversations at once, participate in online conferences and even send and view emoticons. Yahoo! Messenger will leverage the BlackBerry "push" technology to deliver a premier instant messaging experience for mobile users.

Customers can also currently access Yahoo! Mobile Internet, including Yahoo! Search, Yahoo! News and Yahoo! Sports on BlackBerry devices. Through Yahoo! Mobile, Yahoo! focuses on extending key Yahoo! services beyond the desktop, providing an integrated PC-to-Mobile experience and helping consumers make the most of the mobile environment. As the number of mobile consumers continues to grow, Yahoo! has rolled out mobile extensions of key services across multiple carriers. RIM and Yahoo! plan to work with carriers to make the services available to customers.
