TAIPEI -- Taiwan had the second most users of Yahoo Inc.'s mobile apps of any market in the Asia-Pacific region as of June, behind only India, the Internet portal said Wednesday, attributing the result in part to releases of Taiwan-exclusive apps.
But Yahoo did not disclose the number of people using its mobile apps in Taiwan or across the region.
Yahoo did say, meanwhile, that following the introduction of more localized services, about 9 million Taiwanese connected to the company's services via a mobile device in June, nearly double the number seen in January 2013, according to the company's internal data.
"We have high expectations on the Taiwan market, and we hope to continue to bring well-received global mobile products to Taiwan," Fernando Delgado, Yahoo's senior director for mobile and emerging products, told a press briefing.
