Disney is releasing a branded version of the Sharp Galapagos 003SH in Japan. Users can get exclusive content, a Disney email address, and custom cases. It will be running a Disney branded version of Froyo (Android 2.2).
This might seem odd since Steve Jobs is on the Disney Board of Directors, but I remember reading that the iPhone wasn’t that impressive to Japanese audiences because they already had phones that were that good for a while. I can imagine that this along with Disney’s desire to customize everything in the OS influenced the decision to go Android. Let’s just hope they don’t customize it to be as mind-bendingly awful as the Disney website.
