Yahoo launches mobile web aggregator

Yahoo demoed a mobile application which it says will help users better manage online content.

OnePlace utilizes a bookmarking system to help users organize their data. Anything from news feeds, web sites, videos, images, e-mails, to search queries and other items are storable and automatically updatable without user interaction.

Yahoo has already taken some baby steps into the mobile space with its oneSearch and Go! services. The company said that this latest offering is meant to solidify its position further in the mobile space.

The way the content is presented is completely up to the user. By allowing full customization of the organization of information, users can do so in a way that best makes sense to them, Yahoo says.

Personalized content from Yahoo's network of sites as well as some of the most popular websites like Digg and Last.FM are also portable to the device. Additionally, an RSS reader allows users to read and subscribe to feeds from the device itself.

The service is expected to launch in the second quarter of this year. A list of supported devices is not yet available.
