Yahoo will create versions of its mobile Internet services to run on various phone platforms, potentially including Google's phone software and the Apple iPhone, a top executive said on Monday.

Yahoo is ready to demonstrate its commitment to mix and match services of its own with those of rivals in a new, more open strategy, mobile chief Marco Boerries told a meeting on the sidelines of the Consumer Electronics Show.

By offering Internet services that work on existing phones rather seeking to compete with mobile phone software of its own, Yahoo can reach hundreds of millions of phone users, Boerries said.

In addition, developers can create widgets to deliver mini websites and join Viacom's MTV, MySpace and eBay with these mini-sites on the mobile network.

cool. I like it when a company is part of the internet rather than trying to control it.

I wonder how "Google Phone" will pan out
