When it comes to mobile search, there's been an ongoing discussion between who gets it more: Yahoo or Google. However, that may be leaving out one of the more important players. After all, Microsoft has been (finally) starting to make headway with its Windows Mobile 5 operating system for mobile phones, and today it announced the purchase of a mobile search startup. Of course, Microsoft seems to be taking the slow and steady approach, both with online search and additional mobile offerings. That doesn't necessarily mean they're playing catch up -- just being methodical, if history is any indicator. So, while Google and Yahoo may jump out to the early lead, it will be interesting to see if Microsoft becomes a disruptor as a late, but powerful, entrant.
