Yahoo! Bloggers Outreach and Yahoo! Mobile at CommunicAsia 2009

Yahoo invited several bloggers as part of their Blogger Outreach Program to CommunicAsia 2009 on Wednesday. There, we were given a presentation of the new Yahoo mobile, an open and highly personalized mobile starting point to the Internet.

Yahoo Mobile for the web is now available across more than 400 devices with HTML enabled mobile browsers. Yahoo also announced that the Yahoo Mobile iPhone app is now available in the Apple iPhone App Store.

With Yahoo Mobile, you can get the most current, relevant answers you need thanks to Yahoo oneSearch and read the most interesting stories buzzing on the Internet right now as selected by Yahoo's editorial team.

You can also use Yahoo Mobile to access your Yahoo Mail and other popular email services, connect to social networks thanks to Social Pulse, chat with your friends via the Yahoo Messenger and manage your favourite content such as blogs, websites, news, etc.

Here's Yahoo's Adam Taggart (video above) talking to the bloggers about some of the cool features of Yahoo Mobile.

After the blogger event, we then headed to Yahoo's booth and were treated to their Yahoo Purple Freeze which tasted like er, Ribena. I love Ribena but I still prefer the Yahoo Ice Cream that they gave out at last year's CommunicAsia.

Here's a video of the crowd queueing for the Yahoo Purple Freeze - lots of thirsty people there - and some photos taken at the Yahoo booth.

There are more pics here.
