Yell today announces an agreement that makes its Yell.com local business search service available as a widget on a range of Samsung touch-screen devices.
The agreement marks the first time a Yell.com search widget has been made available for a device manufacturer’s widget gallery.
The specially designed Yell.com search icon is now downloadable free* from the Samsung ‘Widget Gallery’ and is pre-installed on three of Samsung’s full-touch-devices; the Samsung Jet (S800), Samsung Tocco Ultra (S8300) and Samsung Beat DJ (M7600). The widget will be pre-installed on further new devices in the coming months.
Samsung mobile users can personalise their device home screen with the Yell.com widget, allowing them to search for local services from Yell.com’s database of more than two million UK businesses with a single touch.
The Yell.com widget is the only UK classified local business directory search service available in the Samsung ‘Widget Gallery’.
David Pearce, head of mobile services for Yell in the UK, said: “Samsung’s stylish touch screen handsets are an ideal platform for us, providing users with quick and easy access to Yell.com’s free, detailed UK local business information - wherever they are, whenever they need it.
“This agreement signals significant expansion for Yell in the fast moving mobile space. By working with a leading mobile handset manufacturer, we are widening the accessibility to our business information for a new audience.”
