US-based web portal Yahoo! said its personalised web service for mobile devices called “Yahoo! Mobile”, present only in eight countries globally, has been made available to users in India.
Yahoo! Mobile is an open and highly-personalised “mobile starting point to the Internet”, on the mobile Web and as an Apple iPhone app, a company statement said.
“The service is available across more than 300 devices with HTML-enabled mobile browsers. This includes Opera Mini browsers, RIM browsers, Webkit-based browsers, Windows mobile browsers and so on,” Yahoo! India’s Senior Director, Mobile Products, Manish Dalal, told PTI in Mumbai.
Dalal said the service allows the browser to personalise his page by getting stock quotes of a desired company or accessing social networking sites.
“Instead of paying for stock updates, you can add the name of a particular company on your page to get its quotes. It also allows access to YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other e-mail services,” Dalal said.
While the HTML-enabled mobile browsers can avail of this service by visiting http://in.msn.m.yahoo.com, the iPhone app is available in the Apple iPhone App Store.
