AT&T Inc., Cingular Wireless and Yahoo! Inc. have announced the AT&T Yahoo! Go Mobile, an integrated service that gives consumers real-time access to their AT&T Yahoo! Internet customized online content, services and community on a wireless phone.
AT&T is now offering the AT&T Yahoo! Go Mobile service on the Nokia 6682 handset from Cingular.
With the new mobile service AT&T Yahoo! Internet subscribers will be able to access, in a single mobile application, a set of their personalized AT&T Yahoo! services, including Mail, Photos, Address Book, Calendar, Messenger and Web, Image and Local search, as well as customized news, weather and sports.
The AT&T Yahoo! communications services are also connected to the built-in e-mail, messaging, address book and calendar applications on the mobile phone, giving consumers one source for the information they find most vital. For example, if a user loses his mobile device, his saved contact information will still be available to him on the Web and easily synched with a new mobile device.
For AT&T, this new application supports an initiative by the company to integrate AT&T services and content across the three screens that many consumers value most today: the PC, the cell phone and the TV. For Yahoo!, this new service is part of a suite of innovative applications designed to extend the reach of Yahoo!'s services beyond the browser.
