Sounds weird? Well, Yahoo is not actually manufacturing the phone but its their initiative and the phone will have Yahoo theme & services pre-installed.
The phone will be developed by Sharp and it’s nothing but a re-branded version of ‘Aquos Phone The Premium SoftBank 009SH‘. It will be Android 2.3 powered handset and will have a 4-inch LCD screen with QHD resolution. One of the cutting edge feature included is 8MP CMOS camera from Sharp. Remaining common things are Bluetooth 3.0, IEEE 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, a microSDHC slot, a digital TV tuner, an e-wallet function, infrared communication, etc.
The phone is specially made for Japan as Yahoo is most used network there. Customers can expect Yahoo’s Android services like Yahoo Japan Home, Yahoo Japan Auctions, a calendar, dictionary, Yahoo Loco (the company’s LBS), etc. Yahoo is planning to bring the phone in market by next month.
