Yahoo! India mobile

At the risk of boring you by droning on about the same themes, I sense a real wave of activity on the mobile front. My New Year's Day post talked about the Google/China Mobile link-up. Now contentsutra points me to a piece in The Hindu newspaper about Yahoo!'s mobile developments in India. The article, based on an interview with Prabhakar Raghavan, Head, Yahoo Research says:

In India, Yahoo, along with partners such as mobile manufacturers, is working on bringing location-based information, Bluetooth (so you would be notified if your friends are nearby), more languages and speech-to-text to mobile search. The mobile usage patterns of youth in India are also being observed by researchers at the Bangalore centre, informed Mr George Zacharias, Managing Director, Yahoo India.
