Yahoo has taken another step to strengthen its hold in the mobile content segment with the launch of its flagship all-in-one mobile application Yahoo! Go 3.0 to European countries including France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK at the end of Q2 2008.
Currently, Yahoo! Go 3.0 is available to US consumers and compatible with more than 50 mobile devices. Moreover, these European markets will also gain access to localized services from mobile widgets such as eBay, professional networking site XING, MySpace and European football coverage Eurosport. Yahoo! Mobile Widgets will be accessible via devices that support the new Yahoo! Go 3.0 client or the recently redesigned Yahoo! mobile home page, available at http://mobile.yahoo.com.
â€œYahoo! Mobile has tremendous momentum in Europe and we are expanding our leadership with innovative offerings and key partnerships. We believe delivering Yahoo! Go 3.0 and exciting widgets that markets demand will help make Yahoo! an even more indispensable starting point for users, as well as grow value for advertisers, publishers and developers across our mobile ecosystem,â€ said Marco Boerries, executive vice president, Connected Life, Yahoo!, in a press release.
