In a move that can be described no other way than to say that Yahoo is just trying to be ahead of Google in something, the big Y! just announced that they've struck a deal with Motorola to embed proprietary Yahoo-powered software on new mid- and high-end Moto phones, though we don't know which models specifically are going to be involved just yet.

The whole slate of services is called Yahoo Go for Mobile, which ties things like your address book, Yahoo search, and Yahoo e-mail into one package. Yahoo finalized a similar deal with Nokia earlier this year. Google has said that they are trying to find similar partnerships but have fallen behind Yahoo in this race.By the first half of 2007, Motorola will "pre-load and prominently feature Yahoo Go for Mobile on handsets it sells, worldwide." Nokia phones with the software are already available, mainly in Europe and Asia.
