Yahoo Electronics

Yahoo Electronics home theater and dvd

The first Yahoo! branded electronics (made by Diamond Electronics) have now been officially announced.

The announcement covered two home theater systems (the YHT-630, a $199 210 watt compact system, and the YHT-650, a $269 system with more features) and three DVD players (the YDP-305, a $79 DVD player with memory card reader and USB, and the YDP-700 and 701 which are both compact $99 DVD players).

It is nice to see Yahoo! moving into consumer electronics but this seems like a very cautious entry. I hope to see more interesting electronics from Yahoo in the future like portable hard drive video players and LCD/plasma TVs: Yahoo is all about the portal, so they need electronics that work with (or sync with) the Yahoo! portal.
