    What do you know, Yahoo also wants a piece of the ever-growing Android market despite the fact that the mobile platform is owned by its archrival – Google. However, the Internet giant isn’t going for the users in the Western hemisphere — rather, they decided to launch an Android-powered Yahoo! Phone in Japan, where they are still the single most visited website.[/p]

    Nice to know yahoo is very much alive and expanding its market, even if it is only in Japan.

    Meh. I can't see anyone buying this over Google's Android, though it doesn't look too bad.

    That's one ugly iPhone.
    (Yes, I'm totally trolling).

    But to be serious, I am worried. I don't think Yahoo has any previous hardware things. So this might fal lthrough the cracks.

    I'm pretty sure that applies to anything with a circuit board in it.

    Yahoo! is a million times more useful in Japan, where it does a lot more than search and in fact is used more commonly than Google for all its different services.
    I can see this being successful.

    This doesn't apply to Japan only, but across East Asian countries as a matter of fact. Yahoo in Taiwan is the default homepage for probably 95% of computer users, because of its various features that are somehow missing in the Western versions. Google Taiwan has been pushing out advertisements and daily contests to encourage people to use Google Search instead of Yahoo.

    Behind you.
    Wait, isn't Android owned by Google?
    Yeah, Apple will probably sue this.
