Yahoo’s mobile search, oneSearch, is now set as the default mobile search engine on AT&T’s MEdia Net portal. Users will be able to access news, financial information, weather conditions, Flickr photos and web and mobile sites. Additionally, users will see ringtones, wallpaper, gaes and other content for their phones.
AT&T’s YellowPages.com will still provide local search results.
