To all the Yahoo! heads out there, your app pack is officially ready!  Yahoo Messenger, Mail and even a search widget were launched today in the Android market.  It’s a little surprising that it took Yahoo! this long to create a search widget knowing that Google has been killing it in the smartphone market because of their search’s integration, but at least they made it.
