T-Mobile USA ditches Yahoo mobile search for Google
Instead, the fourth largest US carrier has chosen Google as its mobile search provider. Moreover, it looks like T-Mobile plans to work with Medio Systems, too (which indexes results for content like ringtones and wallpapers).
Reportedly, “Google Search is now active in T-Mobile’s Web2Go platform and home page.”
Even so, Yahoo is still working with T-Mobile USA, providing services like Yahoo Mail, News, Finance, Yahoo Messenger and Flickr.
At the moment, Google also provides mobile search for Sprint in the US. AT&T still works with Yahoo, while Verizon has a partnership with Microsoft.
Unlike T-Mobile USA, T-Mobile Europe didn’t ditch Yahoo for Google (yet).
