After the Google I/O event and news of Froyo and Google TV in the past couple of days, the big G seems to be on everyone's mind. A search provider we don't hear from as much, Yahoo, may be ready to make take a piece of that mindshare on Monday with a press conference where they are reportedly going to announce a partnership with phone manufacturer Nokia codenamed "Project Nike." Kara Swisher of All Things D has announced the new partnership that aims to help Yahoo compete with Google and Bing. Yahoo, who doesn't have a mobile existence like Google with Android or Bing with Windows Phone 7, could increase their presence in the mobile space with Nokia.
Although Nokia doesn't have a huge piece of the U.S. market, they are a big part of the mobile phone sector worldwide. However, Nokia is known more for their feature phones than high-end smartphones. With both companies struggling to stay relevant in the mobile space, a deal like this may be necessary to compete with the likes of Google, Microsoft, and Apple.
Do you think a partnership between Yahoo and Nokia makes sense? Tell us your thoughts!
