    Default Aviate seems like it would work great on a yahoo phone

    Meg Whitman wants to take big steps and the release of aviate today seems like a nice Launcher for a yahoo phone. I wonder if this in the works. I bet if they released a moto G priced phone with Android store available it could be a successful option for yahoo. It's a nice interface for people who feel confused using Android, Imo. I've used plenty of different launchers and this is a nice one I think.

    Sorry, nitpicking here, but I think you mean Marissa Mayer. Whitman heads HP.

    Yahoo phone? Next can we get an AOL phone that makes the classic dial up noises when it's powering on and says, "You got mail!"

    Haha I think yahoo is a little more relevant than AOL.

    Everybody wants a phone now. Though a Yahoo Phone with Google Play Services would be cool.

    Problem is ecosystem. The way I see it, even previously major players can't tap into the market with their own platforms - e.g. Blackberry, who has all but conceded the enterprise race to Android and (smartly) opened up BB to Android apps, and Nokia, who had to settle with Microsoft.

    Unlike Amazon, I don't think Yahoo is in the position with its shareholders to make such a gamble. Also, I feel like entering the US market would be such a disaster for Yahoo. Look at Motorola. Even with Google's backing, the X has been a commercial flop. And they're conceding that the US market is tough and with the G succeeding in Latin America and elsewhere, they don't seem to be enthusiastic about the US market anymore.

    I think Yahoo is doing a splendid job with apps - their Weather app is my go to and Aviate definitely looks like it will be a hit. And Yahoo Screen and Yahoo Sports have great interfaces. I hope Yahoo continues to build this segment and focuses on what it knows best right now. That seems to be a winning strategy and I feel like entering the smartphone market would cripple them for good.
