According to AllThingsD, this Monday Yahoo and Nokia will announce a partnership dubbed Project Nike — after the Greek goddess of victory — which will see the two companies band together in an effort fight off both Apple and Google’s continued foray into the mobile world. The deal is said to add Yahoo “email, search and other applications and services into a range of [Nokia] devices,” however, the deal is not expected to produce a “Yahoo-centric” smartphone as was once rumored. We don’t think it needs to be spelled out for anyone, Yahoo is the lone member of the three major search engines that is not heavily tied into a mobile platform. The press conference is set to kick off at 10am EDT in New York City, so rest easy until then, because whatever happens, your pals at BGR will be sure to keep you in the loop.
