Nokia Agrees To Expand Use Of Yahoo Services

Yahoo Web mail and instant messaging will be available on broader array of Nokia cell phones.

Nokia will offer Yahoo Web mail and instant messaging services on a wider range of mobile phones, the company said yesterday.

The services will initially be available on the Nokia 6300, 5300 XpressMusic, and 5200 phones. In the future, the same services, as well as the ability to synchronize Yahoo contacts, tasks and calendar on the PC and the phone, would be added to other devices that use Nokia's Series 40 software platform.

Series 40 covers the broadest range of mobile devices offered by Nokia. Along with personal information management applications, the platform provides Web browsing and support for music and video. Nokia says it has sold more than 400 million Series 40-enabled phones, which were introduced in 2002.

The latest agreement is an expansion of a Nokia-Yahoo partnership announced in April 2005. Nokia is the world's largest handset maker.
