Yahoo is set to announce that its e-mail, instant messaging, photo management and other services will be available on mobile phones without using a browser.

Yahoo Go Mobile is set to be launched by Yahoo later today. It is a set of applications that includes Yahoo Mail, Yahoo Messenger, photo management, a calendar, an address book, internet and image search facilities, plus news, finance and sports news.

The services are to be preloaded on Nokia Series 60 mobile phones and will be available in 10 countries worldwide, including the UK.

Updates to the services will be automatically synchronised over the air between the mobile phone and a user account held on Yahoo servers.

In addition, Yahoo Go TV, will be available later this spring. It will make entertainment content services available on any PC-connected TV, via a small downloadable “widget” application on the PC.

These services will include access to content from CNN and MTV, movie trailers, TV shows, and news, weather, sports scores, and stock data. The free service will contain ads.

By reducing the need to use browsers, Yahoo is attempting to deliver faster automatic services to users and gain greater support for its web portal.

The announcements are expected at today’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
