The Google and Microsoft mobile search war

16 Nov 2006 | Google , Sprint Nextel | 0 comments


We don't exactly know is this thing is a coincidence or not, but Google and Microsoft have announced yesterday separate deals with 2 mobile phone carriers to include their search engines on handsets.

While Google made a deal with 3mobile, Microsoft announced that Sprint Nextel would put the software maker's search engine on their phones. Sprint will share the revenue from advertisements located on Windows Live search results.

"The mobile internet has now developed to such a degree that we can now leave the 'walled garden' behind and let our customers access and enjoy the very best of what the converged internet and media worlds can offer," said Christian Salbaing, managing director of European telecommunications.
