Samsung aligns with Google, Yahoo! to create rich experience for mobile users

Samsung has formed a strategic alliance with Yahoo! and Google to distribute their popular services and products on Samsung mobile phones. Samsung will pre-load Yahoo! services, including Yahoo! Go for Mobile 2.0, Yahoo! Mail and Yahoo! Messenger on its mobile phones in the first half of 2007.

Samsung mobile phones equipped with Google applications will enable consumers to search information, find locations, and manage their email on the move.

A Samsung communiqué quoted Kitae Lee, President of Samsung’s Telecom Network Business, as saying, “Samsung recognises consumers’ need for Internet access through their mobiles anytime, anywhere. Samsung mobile phones with Yahoo! services will provide consumers with fast and convenient access to the Internet, even on the move. Our successful partnership with Yahoo! builds on Samsung’s continuing efforts to enhance consumers’ mobile experience.”

Deep Nishar, Director of Wireless Products and Strategy for Google Inc, “Google is dedicated to providing users around the world with easier access information and services when they are mobile. Working with an industry leader like Samsung is a great way to accomplish that. Improving the mobile user experience is of paramount importance to both Samsung and Google, and by working together we’ll be able to bring the power, functionality, and convenience of Google search, Google Maps for mobile, and Gmail for mobile devices to millions of Samsung users across the globe.”

Samsung has launched the Ultra Edition 13.8 (SGH-Z720), its first mobile handset installed with Google mobile search and Gmail services. Future models will also be Google-ready for consumers.
