HTC Shipping Yahoo Go on All Smartphones. Chairs Last Seen Fleeing at Microsoft

HTC, the undisputed leader of Windows Mobile smartphones, has just announced a partnership with Yahoo. The deal? To load Yahoo Go—a weather, news, stocks, sports, widgets, flickr, and internet app suite—onto HTC's phones. With Microsoft already embedding Live! onto Windows Mobile 6 phones, this partnership seems interesting.

Will users with HTC phones be using both Yahoo Go and Live! Or will one be removed in favor of the other? In any case, we're sure Microsoft, including Balmer, isn't too happy with HTC loading a competitor's software onto the devices at the OEM level.
