As for the phone, it will be manufactured by Sharp and will have a 4-inch Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) with qHD resolution, Android 2.3, 8 megapixel capturing camera with a CMOS sensor, Bluetooth 3.0, Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) 802.11 b/g/n, microSDHC card slot, a built-in digital TV tuner, an e-wallet function and infrared communications.

The phone will come with some of Yahoo’s apps pre-installed, such as Yahoo Japan Home, Yahoo Japan Auctions, Yahoo Luco, etc. The Yahoo phone will start selling late next month in Japan.
