New Yahoo Japan for iPhone

iPhone goes on sale on July 11 in Japan, and I heard that there was a short line (not long at all compared to the line forming in front of the Apple shop in New York city) forming in front of the store in Tokyo.

As you may know, Softbank won the contract for iPhone in Japan, which means that Yahoo Japan (owned by Softbank) becomes it’s official web portal and the search engine.

Here, you can see new Yahoo Japan for iPhone. You can click each icon to see the service screen. Yahoo for iPhone can be used from iPod Touch, too.

Yahoo said that you can search both web sites and mobile sites from iPhone.
