Earlier this year, we saw Verizon launch a new mobile service provider under the Yahoo banner. Simply called Yahoo Mobile, its launch offering included a single plan that offers unlimited service for $39.99 a month. Now the company is moving forward by partnering with ZTE to release a special edition phone. The ZTE Blade A3Y will be Yahoo Mobile’s first exclusive smartphone that’s bundled with a couple of exclusive features and services from the company.

In addition to Yahoo Mobile’s unlimited service, it will also come with Yahoo Mail Pro, unlimited hotspots, and a couple of native Yahoo apps like Yahoo News, Sports, and Weather.
