Google and Yahoo will both roll out new wireless services to take advantage of advanced networks and cell phones to give users features similar to those available on computers.
Yahoo soon will introduce a cellphone it will sell through a partnership with SBC Communications, according to SBC executives. The phone will take Yahoo a step closer to linking music, photos and email with consumers' existing online accounts, address books and preferences, the paper said.

Google is tailoring some Internet services for use on wireless devices. Starting Monday, consumers using some types of cellphones will be able to access satellite maps wirelessly as they can on the Google Maps service, the paper said.
The SBC-Yahoo phone will operate on the Cingular network and will be available in early 2006 for $200-300. It will feature an MP3 player, 1.3MP digital camera and a removable memory card. Read on over at Reuters to learn more.
