MediaTek deal means Yahoo services will be built into feature phones

Chip maker MediaTek has announced a partnership with Yahoo! that’ll see Yahoo! services embedded in MediaTek’s mobile platform solutions. It means that Yahoo! Messenger, News, Finance, Weather, Mail and Flickr can all be pre-loaded on new smartphones and feature phones.

Ming-Kai Tsai, Chairman of MediaTek, said “MediaTek has redefined the mobile landscape through our partnership with Yahoo!  By integrating Yahoo! services into our mobile platform solutions, we are providing our customers and end users with access to the best experience for hugely popular Yahoo! services like Messenger, Mail, News, Weather and much more. Our collaboration with Yahoo! makes it more convenient for handset manufacturers to accelerate their speed to market and to reduce their deployment cost of those popular services. This is a significant milestone and a win-win for all parties who can now capitalize on the high growth rate of feature phones happening around the world.”

Last year MediaTek shipped over 500 million units worldwide.
