Nov 30, 2006, 6:00 AM
Yahoo plans to offer e-mail and instant messaging on Nokia phones, expanding a partnership it began with the mobile giant last year. The new services will at first be available on the Nokia 6300, 5300 XpressMusic, and 5200 handsets before being added to other Nokia Series 40 phones. Previously, Yahoo has teamed up with Nokia to provide search on Nokia smartphones and Yahoo Go Mobile, its mobile Web browser, on Nokia handsets for AT&T and Cingular Wireless subscribers. In addition to e-mail and messaging, Yahoo will also offer its Personal Information Management application on Nokia phones to sync contacts, tasks and calendar dates between a PC and a mobile device.
