Yahoo, Nokia and Cingular to team up on new phone

Nov 07 2005 - 12:17 PM ET | Cingular, Nokia

In an interesting move for Yahoo, the company announced that it will team up with Nokia and SBC to produce a mobile phone that will ship on Cingular's network. Unlike most comapnies wanting to get into the mobile phone space, Yahoo didn't go the MVNO route but used its pre-existing relationship with SBC (parent of Cingular) to get a Cingular distribution deal.

The Nokia made phone with feature:

  • MP3 player
  • 1.3 megapixel camera
  • Removable memory card.

The phone is expected to cost $200-300 and ship as soon as early next year.
