Yahoo! (Yes, Yahoo!) is back and this time, it’s jumping into the smartphone sector with the release of its first self-branded handheld, the Yahoo Mobile ZTE Blade A3Y. It’s powered by parent company’s Verizon mobile network and probably best of all, the device costs a very affordable $50. What’s more, it’s part of Yahoo Mobile’s unlimited phone service, which definitely makes it a promising prospect.
