AT&T Inc is set to begin featuring Yahoo search services on the Internet menu of mobile handsets, the companies said on Monday.
AT&T plans to offer, through its mobile Internet portal, a collection of Yahoo's oneSearch mobile Web services including links to news, financial information, weather, Flickr photos as well as Web search via the phone.
This is part of a revised partnership announced in January between the two companies where Yahoo will provide search and advertising services to AT&T's broadband computer, Internet TV and mobile phone customers. AT&T's YellowPages.com will deliver local search information to customers as part of the new deal.
Separately, Yahoo reached a contract extension with Verizon Communications Inc on a similar broadband computer deal to deliver Web services to Verizon computer broadband and Internet TV users. That deal does not cover mobile phones.
Yahoo said it has announced partnerships with 60 carriers worldwide to offer OneSearch services on mobile phone networks serving close to around 800 million subscribers.
