Mobile News: Google Gets LG, Yahoo Gets Virgin Mobile
Maybe 2007 will be the year that mobile finally reaches the tipping point. If the recent flurry of mobile news is any representation, it could just be the year that mobile reaches the masses.
Today we have two partnership deals to share with you.
First, LG Electronics will start shipping select LG handsets with Google apps already installed. The phones will offer one-click access to Google search via an icon on the application menu and will come with Google Maps, Gmail and Blogger.
Next up to bat, is Yahoo and their deal with Virgin Mobile USA.
Starting next month, Yahoo Mail and Yahoo Messenger can be downloaded onto several Virgin Mobile handsets, and the applications will be preloaded on select phones in the future.
