Yahoo is bringing to the mobile space a product it feels will make it more convenient to manage your social communications in one place. This product is called Yahoo oneConnect and the company expects it will be available in the second quarter of the year.
Yahoo oneConnect is built around an open architecture which brings together email, instant messaging (IM), text messaging (SMS), and social networks into one central, mobile location. A centrally managed “socially-connected” address book will let one view status updates, photo uploads and the recent activity of contacts across various social networks. This same open design will let one talk across a range of popular online services.
