Yahoo! Go Mobile 2.0 updated
Yahoo! Inc. has launched a new gamma version of Yahoo! Go for Mobile 2.0, a month after the new service initially launched in beta. The new gamma version features the ability for consumers to search directly from maps and share oneSearch results, news articles and the service directly with friends.

Yahoo! Go 2.0 will be supported by more than 100 mobile phones and have been downloaded more than 400,000 by consumers around the world in the first month.

One of the features of Yahoo! Go 2.0 is oneSearch, that recognises the intent of a search term and presents relevant content on the results page, grouped by subject. making it easy to read through and drill down to get more details.

The Local & Maps widget gives consumers quick access to local directory information for businesses across the US, enhanced with ratings and reviews from the Yahoo! community. Interactive maps feature the ability to directly search for local businesses, get driving directions and real time traffic updates.

The software also presents current headlines and a breaking news ticker in the News, Sports, Entertainment, Weather and Finance widgets, allowing users to customise it to receive content from sources on the Web publishing RSS feeds.

A Flickr widget integrates with the photo-sharing community of the same name, making it easy for users to upload and manage images from their camera phone. It is also possible to share photos, view friends' pictures and browse or search images.


- Streamlined e-mail keeps consumers in sync - The E-mail widget allows consumers to quickly respond to, delete or compose new messages or view attachments with a single click - all automatically synchronized with their Yahoo! Mail account in real time.

The new gamma version of Yahoo! Go 2.0 also includes display ads from major global advertisers. The advertisements will run in several of the Widgets, near the top of the page. Consumers will be able to click on these interactive ads to directly call the advertiser or to learn more information about the advertiser's offer.

Yahoo! Go 2.0 works with Symbian and Windows Mobile devices.
