Tata DoCoMo launches the Yahoo! phone on its network for Rs 5,499

23 Sep
The Yahoo! phone (yeah, the one to offer one-click access to Yahoo! online services) which was announced almost 4 months ago, is ready for a launch in India. Tata DoCoMo has collaborated with Alcatel and Yahoo! to launch the Yahoo! phone (christened as the ‘One Touch Net phone’) on its network. The phone is competitively priced at Rs 5,499 and is available at all Tata DoCoMo outlets.

The One Touch Net phone will offer Tata DoCoMo subscribers lifetime free usage of Yahoo! Mail and Yahoo! Messenger services. A user just needs to sign-in and will get access to all Yahoo! services like Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Messenger, Yahoo! News, Yahoo! Search with Voice, Yahoo! Social Pulse, Yahoo! Homepage, Flickr and of course, the carrier’s official portal-Tata DoCoMo’S Dive In zone.

Just to remind you of the specs, the phone has a 2.4-inch display with a QWERTY keypad below, a 2.0 MP camera, FM Radio, Bluetooth, MP3 player and 80 MB of inbuilt memory. The One Touch Net phone comes in two colour variants – White/Lavender and Black/Silver.

Alcatel officially announces the Yahoo! phone, calls it One Touch Net phone

17 Jun

Couple of days ago, we had reported that Yahoo! would very soon launch a phone which will offer one-click access to Yahoo! online services. Now that the phone has been officially announced by the manufacturer TCT Alcatel, it is christened as ‘ALCATEL One Touch Net’ phone. We had expected that the handset will be named after Yahoo! but shockingly the phone bears the name of the manufacturer Alcatel. The phone will be available in emerging markets including India and South East Asia by Q3 this year.

The Alcatel One Touch Net phone bears a QWERTY keypad with an optical trackpad in the centre. As expected, it will offer easy access to Yahoo! services like Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Messenger, Yahoo! Homepage, Yahoo! Search, Yahoo! Social Pulse, Flickr, and Yahoo! Address Book and Calendar. It sports a 2.4 inch display, a 2.0 MP camera, MP3 player, FM Radio, Bluetooth and 80 MB of internal memory, which we suppose will be expandable.

Yahoo! to launch its phone in Indonesia

15 Jun

Yahoo! will today launch a phone in Indonesia that will provide a single-click access to Yahoo! online services. The phone, manufactured by TCL Alcatel, will be initially available in Indonesia followed by other emerging Asian countries. While details are still scarce about the specifications and pricing of the phone, it will be aimed at new Internet users for whom the first brush with the online world will happen via a cellphone rather than a PC. Yahoo! had earlier tied up with Nokia to power the handset vendor’s Ovi Mail services.
