The multi-year agreement has the Schaumberg, Ill., cellular-phone maker preloading devices with Yahoo Go for Mobile, a package that includes email, local search and an address book. Motorola plans to start shipping Yahoo-equipped phones in the first half of 2007 in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
The deal stems from a partnership the two companies announced in July 2005. Under the alliance, Motorola, the world's second largest cellular phone maker, agreed to embed the Web portal's services in its Linux-based devices, broadband home products and iRadio service.
The agreement was announced two days after Yahoo issued a revenue forecast for 2006 that disappointed Wall Street. In addition, the company delayed the launch of an upgrade of its advertising system.
