Yahoo Partners with Nokia Maps

By on 31 May, 2010
Nokia and Yahoo are teaming up to provide navigation, mapping, email and instant messaging services on a global basis.
Nokia’s Ovi Maps will become the exclusive provider of Yahoo Maps and navigation services and Yahoo will provide Ovi mail and chat services on Nokia handsets as a result of a new partnership.
The companies say they will be working on making it easier for consumers to use their current Ovi services across some of Yahoo’s properties, including easier access to online content.
According to the companies, co-branded services should be available in the second half of 2010, with global availability to follow in 2011.
“Yahoo’s online expertise will bring exciting mail and messaging enhancements to millions of Ovi Mail customers across almost every country around the world, many of whom will have their first internet experience on their mobile,” said Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, Nokia’s CEO.
“We’re excited to expand the reach of our best-in-class mail and messenger services, bringing personalised experiences to more people across the mobile web, particularly in emerging markets where we are seeding the next generation of Yahoo users,” said Carol Bartz, CEO of Yahoo.
