The leading global Internet brand, Yahoo has recently announced the launch of an early beta version of its all-new Yahoo! Go 3.0 at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2008. It’s the Yahoo!’s flagship all-in-one mobile offering which includes an upgraded and feature-rich user interface thanks to the feedback from Yahoo! Go 2.0’s users, aiming to enhance your mobile Internet experience.
“This new open environment provides consumers with a highly-compelling user experience and robust, personalized starting point to the mobile Internet. We are providing users with increased control over their experiences as well as increased choice in getting the content and services they want while on the go,” said Marco Boerries, executive vice president, Connected Life, Yahoo!. “With our innovative mobile services like Yahoo! Go 3.0 and deep partnerships across the industry, we are focused on making the promise of the mobile Internet a reality for consumers around the world.”
According to the company, “The new Home widget for Yahoo! Go 3.0 is an innovative gateway for consumers to get where they’re going on the mobile Internet. It offers an at-a-glance update of what’s new since the last visit; such as how many new e-mails have arrived, upcoming calendar appointments, and new photos posted to Flickr by friends. The Home widget also includes a customizable collection of mobile snippets – previews of the user’s favorite Web content – news headlines, weather conditions and more – to keep users updated while on the go. Also, it allows the user to get quickly where they want to go on the mobile Internet via Yahoo! oneSearch.”
For now, US consumers can download the Yahoo! Go 3.0 BETA version on over 30 mobile devices at get.go.yahoo.com, and the new version is expected to be available worldwide later this year.
