Today in Mobile

Yahoo has scheduled a big press event for Monday, but BoomTown’s Kara Swisher already has broken the details: the Internet giant will announce a partnership with Nokia to bring its apps and services to the Finnish manufacturer’s handsets. It’s a sound move for both parties — Yahoo gains access to a massive worldwide footprint of phones, while Nokia can build out its portfolio of mobile software and services. But I think it’s also an admission on the part of both companies that they’ve been left in the dust in the era of the superphone, and have a lot of catching up to do.
