Nokia and Yahoo! set to team up.

Mobile phone users could be set to benefit from a new alliance between Nokia and Yahoo!, which aims to improve services.

Recycling an old mobile with Envirofone may be something worth considering for people looking to make use of services including navigation and the new plans aim to make improvements to these products.

Carol Bartz, chief executive officer at Yahoo, said: "At the same time, we believe Nokia's strength and continued investment in maps and navigation will greatly enhance our existing products, enabling us to focus on areas that are core to our business."

She added she was excited to expand the reach of the company's Mail and Messenger services, to provide personalised experiences to a greater number of consumers across the mobile web.

Recent findings from Juniper Research found that by 2014 users of location-based local search on mobiles would reach one and a half billion.
