LAS VEGAS -- Yahoo! Inc. (Nasdaq:YHOO - News) today launched Yahoo! oneSearch, an entirely new search service designed to give consumers exactly what they want on their mobile device -- instant answers. oneSearch leverages Yahoo!'s deep experience, investment and expertise in search on the desktop as well as relationships with leading content providers to deliver an unmatched mobile search experience for consumers. With this launch Yahoo! expands its mobile Internet leadership.

Yahoo! oneSearch is available to consumers beginning today through the Yahoo! Go for Mobile 2.0 beta. By the end of January 2007, Yahoo! plans to make oneSearch available across the company's Mobile Web and SMS services. Yahoo! oneSearch will roll out in additional country and language versions in the coming months.

"Yahoo! oneSearch changes the mobile search game by fundamentally improving the way consumers' access and use the Internet on their mobile phones," said Marco Boerries, senior vice president of connected life, Yahoo!. "It delivers a mobile-optimized search experience that understands what consumers are looking for and presents answers directly in the results -- not just a list of Web links to PC sites. Yahoo! oneSearch delivers the right results with just one search."
