Yahoo Expands OneSearch To WAP

Yahoo has expanded its oneSearch service (launched in January this year) to the mobile web—meaning that you don’t have to download the Yahoo Go for Mobile 2.0 app to use it, just go to m.yahoo.com and there’ll be a link to it there. The move is designed to make the service available to a much wider audience: Around 85 percent of handsets in the US have some kind of internet browsing capability.

At the moment the service is only “available” in the US. Anyone with an internet-enabled phone can surf into the site, but since it’s optimized to give results local to the searcher the experience isn’t going to be as good. Over the coming months oneSearch will roll out in additional country and language versions, although GPS-enabled handsets aren’t nearly as common outside the US, so the consumers will have to input their locations.
