Yahoo! Unveils Mobile Local Search, With Maps And Icons
Oct 27, 2004, 12:00 AM
Less than two weeks after Google unveiled its local search service mobile phones, Yahoo! Wednesday followed suit with a mobile search product of their own. However, Google SMS (Short Message Service) uses text-only messages to deliver results, while Yahoo!'s new mobile service gives localized results, maps, and Web site icons. Users can actually point, click, and then make a call.
