(Vietnam News Briefs via NewsEdge) The Yahoo! Mobile service will be gauging its popularity and usability among Vietnamese mobile phone subscribers this year, as local mobile operators MobiFone, VinaPhone and Viettel Mobile enter into an agreement with the GAPIT Communication Co. to offer the new service in Vietnam.

Under the deal, GAPIT will provide Yahoo! PC to SMS (PC2SMS) and Yahoo! SMS Messenger to the subscribers of the three service providers.
