Yahoo Brings Mobile OneSearch to Canada, Europe

Yahoo today launched its OneSearch mobile search application in Canada and five countries in Europe (U.K., Spain, Italy, Germany, and France). It's been designed specifically for mobile device users, with the goal of providing more relevant results on the first page, such as local business listings (and local ads), weather, news headlines, and financial updates.

The application was launched with the Yahoo Go service in January, and made available to WAP device users in the U.S. in March.
