Nokia, the Finnish handset producer, and search bigwig Yahoo on Wednesday said they will expand their existing partnership to offer new Yahoo services like e-mail and instant messaging to users of select Nokia mobile phones, Reuters reports.

Nokia already offers Yahoo search functionality via its phones, and the two firms have been working together since the spring of 2005, according to Reuters.

The new Yahoo services will at first be open only to users of the Nokia 6300, Nokia 5300 XpressMusic and Nokia 5200 phones, but the firm plans to increase the number of handsets it offers such services for in the future, Reuters reports.

In related news, Nokia also has a partnership with Yahoo search rival Microsoft, under which it offers some phone users access to the software giant’s Live Search engine via their handsets.
