Has anyone used/heard about Yahoo! onesearch?

I get the impression it may only really be 'launched' in the US at the moment, hence I've not seen it before. but Opera have just signed and exclusive deal to use it in Opera Mini and Mobile when it is launched globally in the next couple of months.

Interesting that Opera have chosen Yahoo! search for the mobile platforms when they have a revenue stream from Google for desktop search.

Anyone tried it? is it any good? How does it differ from traditional desktop search?

I'm playing with it on my PDA. Nothing jumped out at me as too wonderful. I'll post a few more in-depth thoughts sometime soon...

I heard something about it but haven't really paid that much attention. It's like other new stuff such as AskX or Windows Live Search: "oh? not bad... oh well...". <shrug>

Currently these "new" things feel more like cosmetics, repackaging and rebranding than anything exciting.

Yeah, I get the same feeling Ruud, especially when I hear about it from a press release. They talk it up, but when you actually analyse it, there's not much difference to what is already out there.

Seems like it supports multiple countries, use the pull down on the right on this page http://mobile.yahoo.com/go/phone
