Helio and Yahoo! Partner to Offer Mobile Internet Access
Posted: 13-Apr-2006 [Source: Helio]

[As youth-centric MVNO Helio ramps up for launch this spring, it announces a relationship to offer a variety of Yahoo! services on its 3G network.]

Los Angeles -- HELIO LLC, a new mobile service built for young, connected consumers, and Yahoo!(R) Inc. today announced a relationship to give Helio members access to one of the most extensive suites of Yahoo! services available from any mobile brand. Through this relationship, Helio members will stay connected to their favorite Yahoo! services such as Yahoo! Search, Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Messenger, Yahoo! News, Yahoo! Sports and more on Helio's 3G services.

"There are millions of people who use Yahoo! as their online hub of connectivity and who align with Helio's target market," said Sky Dayton, CEO, HELIO LLC. "By extending Yahoo! services to the Helio platform, we're giving these people the opportunity to access their information and connect with friends from virtually anywhere nationwide -- away from the PC -- all through a familiar experience."

"We're continually seeking new ways to keep our users connected to their community of friends and personalized content," said Marco Boerries, senior vice president, Connected Life, Yahoo!. "Helio's innovative service platform and 3G service allows our users to keep connected in new, unique ways including fast access to the best of the Internet, including Yahoo!'s powerful services, on their mobile phones."

Helio will integrate many of Yahoo!'s industry leading services, including:

*Yahoo! Search: Helio and Yahoo! are partnering to offer an industry first: one-click access to a single-button Yahoo! search experience from the Helio device home screen that combines Yahoo!'s mobile Web, local, and image content with Helio's premium mobile content such as videorings, music videos, games and more. For example, a Helio member can start a search by literally typing in a search term just as if they were dialing a phone number. This feature is provided exclusively by Yahoo! on Helio's device home screen. Members will also be able to use Yahoo! Shortcuts, a quick way to get useful information such as local restaurants, movie showtimes, sports scores, weather, and stock quotes.

*Yahoo! News, Sports, Finance and more: Helio will offer one-touch links to a full range of Yahoo!'s content services including News, Sports, Finance and Movies. In addition, for more immediate access to the latest information from Yahoo!, Helio will provide consumers dynamic news feeds on selected topics on their Helio device home screen.

*Yahoo! Mail: Helio members will have fast and easy access to their Yahoo! Mail account from anywhere, including the ability to reply, forward, delete and move messages to folders. Members will also be able to add, edit or delete contacts in their Yahoo! Address Book.

*Yahoo! Messenger: Yahoo!'s easy to use instant messaging service gives access to the existing friends' list and the ability to send and receive messages. Members will also be able to set presence information to show friends and family when they are online and available to chat.

Combining market-driving innovation from Korea, one of the most advanced 3G markets in the world, with services tailored for the young US consumer, Helio recently announced its exclusive launch devices -- the Hero and Kickflip(TM). Helio will launch in the US this spring. Stay tuned.
