Yahoo Web Services on BlackBerry


Research In Motion (RIM) announced on Wednesday it will be putting Yahoo web services on its BlackBerry devices.

The new Yahoo offerings will include search, e-mail, instant messaging, and news. The new service will be launched in 60 countries in approximately two weeks as RIM starts making it available to 160 carriers.

"Our job is to create a rich user experience for our community so that they want to use Yahoo on it, and hopefully we create such a rich experience for the Yahoo community that they want to buy a BlackBerry and run Yahoo on it," RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie said in an interview with Reuters.

The two companies, who already offer a limited Yahoo service, did not reveal the terms of the agreement.

The Yahoo Go service, which includes real-time access to Yahoo's community information and content services, will follow later this year, RIM said.

Some new devices will have Yahoo preinstalled, and existing users will use a bookmark on their BlackBerrys to install the application.

California-based Yahoo has already announced a similar deal with wireless phone maker Motorola last year, and is working on others with U.S. phone partners AT&T Inc. and Cingular Wireless.
