Yahoo Go 3.0 at CES

Yahoo recently introduced Yahoo Go 3.0 at CES 2008, an update to its suite of internet utilities for mobile devices. Revisions to Yahoo Go were based on customer feedback, such as an updated user interface with many new features, a personalized start page, and support for third-party "widget" plugins. The new interface is designed to be both aesthetically pleasing, while maintaining a high level of functionality, optimizing the small screen on most cell phones. Users can view available components in either the traditional icon view, or the new carousel layout.

Also new to the service is a revised set of navigation shortcuts, and enhanced menu structure, allowing for simpler operation of the service. The new Home widget features Yahoo's oneSearch capability, while the new widget gallery displays new software that can be added to Yahoo Go.

"Today's launch of Yahoo! Go 3.0 is a game-changing mobile development from Yahoo!," said Marco Boerries, executive vice president of Yahoo's Connected Life department. "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. 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."
