Previously the agreement only covered advanced smartphone devices like the N-Series. Nokia will start to bundle Yahoo branded content on many of its Series 40 devices like the recently announced 6300. The bundled services include Yahoo! Mail, Messenger, and Personal Information Management.

Yahoo and Google have been increasing their mobile exposure recently. Motorola's highly touted button up with Google has yet to come out of announcement phase despite its announcement nearly a year ago. Motorola was going to start shipping its handsets with a Google button.
