Nokia to run Yahoo’s maps in global partnership

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:14 am

Nokia Corp. will run mapping and navigation services for Yahoo Inc. in an acknowledgement that the slumping Internet company hasn’t kept up with rival Google Inc. in the increasingly important area of location services.

Yahoo will, in turn, provide e-mail and instant messaging services on Nokia phones, as part of the worldwide partnership announced Monday.

Yahoo has been working to focus on its core businesses - creating and licensing content, selling online ads and providing messaging services - while turning to partners to run some of its other offerings.
