Today on ZDNet i wrote an article about “What If” Microsoft and Yahoo were to fully consummate their marriage and release an iPhone Killer. My brother, Brandon, who is a 3D CGI modeller in Hollywood, did a quick mock-up of what one of these units might look like. I want a Y!Phone!
“a Windows Media-Powered “Y!Phone” that incorporated the features of the Zune portable media player, Wi-Fi connectivity and integration with all the Yahoo! and MSN/Microsoft online assets, built-in camera, integrated slide-out keyboard and HSDPA 3G data service with secure corporate email connectivity and ability to run third party Windows Mobile applications. This, at a corporate volume price point of less than $300 with carrier incentives, could be the device that everyone truly wants.”
