The first line of a fresh Yahoo press release describes the corporation as “a leading global Internet company,” and I have to wonder: isn’t that pretty old news?  Yet, following a deal with six mobile operators throughout Asia, the phrase may bear repeating.

After all, those operators represent “a combined subscriber base of nearly 100 million,” according to Yahoo.  And the American company won’t just hang out in the background, silently providing support; “these new partnerships focus on distribution of Yahoo!’s popular mobile search service, Yahoo! oneSearch, which launched in Asia in May of this year.”

That May release saw oneSearch go live in India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.  Just two weeks earlier, it had been set loose in the UK, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, and France.  With this latest deal, a pattern is emerging: when Yahoo oneSearch does something, it does something big.

The next countries to benefit from the service’s spread are Korea and Taiwan (along with, one might guess, at least four other nations), and the Associated Press reports, “[T]he company is in talks with operators in other regions for possible partnerships.”

“Partners are essential to our consumer-centric mobile strategy and key relationships will continue to evolve and deliver great Internet experiences to our respective customers,” explains David Ko, Yahoo’s vice president and general manager of Connected Life Asia, in a statement.  Ko was referring to the new deal with six Asian operators, but his comments easily apply to oneSearch’s overall approach.

The financial details of the Asian arrangements remain unknown.  Given the speed with which the service is moving, though, it’s a fair guess that Yahoo has made oneSearch a top fiscal priority.

    About oneSearch Mobile Entertainment

    oneSearch (.mobi – dotmobi) is a dedicated Mobile Search portal and Entertainment suite designed especially for the mobile device.

    The site is built purely by its users, via suggesting new ideas and facilities to add to the growing search and entertainment site.

    Comments from the mobile site “our site would not be as good as it is today without you, How !!, Well its simple, you tell us what you want from a mobile entertainment site, and we build it”.

    The existing web /mobile web searches are jammed with dead links and sites that just dont work properly on the mobile handset.
    oneSearch manually tests each site they list within its own top 100 mobile directory on 20 different mobile handsets, making this a thing of the past and a mobile solution for the future.

    I prefer to use oneSearch.mobi as you can still mobile search, and it only searches dotmobi sites, so you know the results are mobile compatible, also, not forgeting, the (bordem buster) entertainment side to onesearch mobile entertainment, free videos, wallpapers, email + loads more, good luck oneSearch.mobi
