Looking for a Yahoo phone? Check out the Alcatel One Touch Net
Now that Google has its own phone, maybe it’s time for Yahoo to have one, too. Meet the Alcatel One Touch Net – which, although it can’t be considered a Yahoo phone in the same way the Nexus One is a Google phone, it seems to be the first handset that fully integrates Yahoo mobile services.
Manufactured by TCT Mobile, the Alcatel One Touch Net is a BlackBerry-like candybar with a full QWERTY keyboard and a “special optical trackpad.“ The new phone also features a 2.4 inch display, EDGE connectivity, stereo Bluetooth, Music player, FM radio, 2MP camera, and 80MB of internal memory.
The Yahoo services preinstalled on the One Touch Net include: Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Messenger, Yahoo! Search, Yahoo! Homepage, Yahoo! Social Pulse, Yahoo! Address Book and Calendar, and Flickr.
Alcatel One Touch Net will cost under $100. It will be available in India starting July. Later this year, the handset will be launched in other Southeast Asian markets, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
