Yahoo boosts mobile service ahead of iPhone

updated 02:10 am EDT, Wed June 20, 2007

Yahoo up mobile offerings

Yahoo has expanded its mobile phone offerings into Asia, Canada and Europe and is revising its US services ahead of the iPhone's launch. Yahoo Go 2.0 has been in testing for since January in the United States and will now be offered in 13 countries including France, Germany, Spain, India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. CNN reports that version 2.0 also lets users download Yahoo Mail, organize e-mail into folders or read file attachments. It can also search the Web on their phones for locally relevant answers or zoom in on maps with current local U.S. traffic conditions

The updates come just in time for the iPhone. Apple has named Yahoo Mail as the phone's featured e-mail delivery service. Marco Boerries, senior vice president of the company's mobile business, told CNN that the iPhone should raise expectations among consumers worldwide that many of the Internet services they expect to find on computers can now also work well on phones.
