Well, well, welll. What do you know? Turns out there’s a Yahoo phone? I ran into an article on Wap Review that carried news of the device. From the article:
Yahoo VP of Product Management Irv Henderson revealed the existence of a “Yahoo phone” which is now available now in Indonesia. The Alcatel branded Yahoo One Touch Net is a mid-range feature phone with a QWERTY form factor resembling a BlackBerry. It has a sub $100 unsubsidized price and is made by Hong Kong’s TCT Mobile Limited , a join venture between Alcatel-Lucent and TCL Communication of China. The Yahoo Phone uses the Opera Mini Browser and runs Java ME games and apps. It has a 2MP camera, Bluetooth, 2.5G (Edge) connectivity and an optical track pad. There are apps or links for Yahoo Mail, Messenger, Contacts, Calendar, the Yahoo Homepage, Yahoo Search with Voice, Yahoo Social Pulse and Flickr.

More information about the Yahoo Phone is available on the Alcatel Mobile phones website.
I am wondering if we will ever see this in Nigeria. Alcatel phones are no longer in circulation here as they used to be years back.
