Motorola and Yahoo! working together to bringconsumer applications to market
Posted on 27-Jul-2005 10:35 | Filed under: News



Motorola, Inc. and Yahoo! Inc. have announced they intend to collaborate to provide consumers with easy access to Yahoo!'s core products and services on Motorola Linux-based mobile devices, broadband-enabled products for the connected home, and through Motorola's forthcoming iRadio solution, starting in 2006.

Motorola and Yahoo! plan to make these services available to key operators worldwide to increase consumer adoption of mobile data services.

"Many of our operator customers have asked us for easier access to the types of Yahoo! services consumers know and love. By aligning with Yahoo! we're able to expand our offerings to customers, while providing a great Seamless Mobility experience for consumers around the globe," said Ron Garriques, president of Motorola's Mobile Device business. "And, by optimizing these products for our leading Linux and Java software platform, we're making it just that much easier for operators to maximize revenue while delivering the most innovative consumer experiences."

"Yahoo! is focused on providing our millions of users with the opportunity to connect to their Yahoo! services on the devices they use. Our plans with Motorola are an important step toward making this vision a reality," said Marco Boerries, senior vice president of the Connected Life business unit, Yahoo!. "By working with Motorola and leading carrier partners on a global basis, we will be able to further extend Yahoo!'s presence beyond the desktop and onto millions more mobile devices, into the home and even into the automobile."

The companies intend to offer both operators and consumers Motorola devices optimized for direct access to the full suite of Yahoo!'s leading products and services.

Motorola's Yahoo! optimized products are expected to be available to consumers in major markets starting in 2006.
