Today, Yahoo! announced that they are launching a new service called Yahoo! oneSearch. Essentially, this will bring the world of web 2.0 to mobile devices. The mobile services will be launched in various other countries soon as well. Even though it was available on a limited number of mobile providers before, as of today the service will be available to a majority of mobile phone users in the U.S.
