As you may have heard already, this week our Connected Life team has taken Go for Mobile 2.0 GA in the US and further expanded Yahoo! oneSearch into Asia with six new carrier partnerships.

Now ready for primetime, the new version of Yahoo! Go 2.0 and the access to localized beta versions in 13 countries will be available today, expanding to more than 200 different mobile phones in the U.S. by the end of July and more than 400 by end of year. Helping to broaden the adoption of the mobile Internet, the team has included a few new enhancements in this version, including increased speed, better e-mail, more powerful maps, easier navigation and better mobile search results.

Further expanding the mobile search experience is the recent development coming out of Yahoo! oneSearch this week. Yahoo! has now signed partnership agreements with six major mobile operators across Asia to distribute oneSearch, reaching nearly 100 million new subscribers. Since its beta launch in January and Asia launch in May, we’ve listened to all the great feedback from our users and have constantly worked to improve performance, make navigation easier and increase local relevance — all with the goal of giving consumers better search results and instant answers.

Dave Ko, VP and GM of Yahoo!’s Connected Life division in Asia, just announced these partnerships and the rollout of the new version of Go 2.0 at CommunicAsia 2007 in Singapore. You can take a look at his conference recap and the details of the recent oneSearch expansion here.
