As Yahoo! and Google battle it out old-style to find out who is king of the mobile web these days, Yahoo! had already stepped it up a notch from offering its Yahoo! Go service on Nokia phones via Symbian's S60 to offering the same experience on that Windows Mobile handset -- but now, it'll be on quite a few WM handsets. With that notion, Yahoo! signed on HTC (maker of a healthy dose of WM handsets) to embed Yahoo! into almost every HTC Windows Mobile device -- including recent models (we guess via a firmware update) and all new and upcoming HTC models as well. So, in addition to Yahoo! Go on Symbian-powered handsets and Windows Mobile handsets made by HTC, the California company is embedding Yahoo! services into standard handset models from Nokia, Motorola, Samsung and LG as well. Google -- you got a comeback for that?
