Nokia and Yahoo! have extended their partnership to offer Yahoo! branded services including Yahoo! Mail and Messenger on Nokia's range of mobile phones operating on the Series 40 platform. Yahoo! services will initially be available on the newly announced Nokia 6300 (pictured), the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic and the Nokia 5200.
Yahoo! services and the ability to synchronise Yahoo! contacts, tasks and calendar on the PC and phone will be added to other models in the future.
Series 40 is the software user interface that powers Nokia's range of feature mobile devices. The Series 40 platform enables a broad range of applications and features, including messaging, browsing, music and video standards as well as personal information management.
Nokia and Yahoo! have been working together since April 2005 to establish an optimal internet experience, including Search, for users on their mobile devices.
Yahoo! services for Nokia Series 40 mobile phones include Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Messenger and Yahoo! Personal Information Management. The last service allows users to synchronise their Yahoo! contacts along with tasks and calendar, on their PC with those on a mobile device.
