Samsung Adding Yahoo to Android Phones

Douglas Carter

An article from Business Wire reports that Yahoo! and Samsung are teaming up to "Extend strategic global partnership for mobile" which might involve Samsung replacing the Google Search and Mail on some of their Android phones as well as their Bada platform with Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Search, Yahoo! News and other popular services.

As a user of Yahoo! Mail and Gmail, I would like to see Yahoo! support available on the phone, but I am just fine with having Google Mail being the default mail service. Now comes the wait to see which phones will be affected by this change. The story on BusinessWire was not clear as to whether it would replace or supplement Google's services.

This move comes after AT&T removed Google Search in favor of Yahoo! Search. If you were thinking about purchasing Samsung's latest superphone, the Galaxy S, does this affect your decision? Do you think we will see any other companies following AT&T,and Samsung's example? Sound off!
