Users can access the services from a data-enabled phone by going to mobile.yahoo.com."<br /><br /> <img src="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/images/yahoomobile.gif" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/> <br /><br />First Google, then Smarter.com and now Yahoo!. Everyone wants our SMS search request message. :-) I wonder how long we will have to wait before MSN jumps into the fray. This just goes to prove that the battle for the best search engine throne has now spread to the mobile world.

I don't understand why this is such a big deal now. It's been active for years. I guess they feel left out.
