Thad White

The final presentation of the night was from Thad White of Yahoo! Mobile. Thad demonstrated Yahoo!’s send-to-phone features allowing a user to browse Yahoo! content on their computer and send the content to their mobile phone using a SMS message that includes a URL.

Tim mentioned that Yahoo! concentrates its development effort on the Series 60 platform because of the openness of the platform. Yahoo! is able to easily access information in the device’s native address book, calendar, and photo storage without extra programming.

Thad’s entire presentation and question and answer period lasted 24 minutes and 33 seconds. The audio is available as a 11.1 megabyte MP3 file.
