    I must say, I didn’t even know Disney had a mobile department but apparently things work a little differently out there in Japan. The DM010SH could be considered Disney’s premium Android of the two, featuring a 4-inch 960×540 qHD display, 1GHz processor and an 8MP rear camera. The Disney DM011SH is a water-proof slider (perfect for rides down Splash Mountain) featuring a 3.4-inch display and high res 854×480, 1GHz processor and 8MP camera. Both devices will be running on a modified Android 2.3 Gingerbread, themed up to the nines according to Disney’s standards. The devices will also come in various colors like Minnie pink, Donald white and Mickey black. Pricing has yet to be revealed but expect both devices to launch sometime towards the end of the year. Strangest part about all this? Steve Jobs is actually on Disney’s board of directors.

    I can see the marketing strategy behind this already, super bowl commercial/interview after game, "Announcer: So, (So and so) you just won the super bowl, what are you going to do next?" (So and so): "I'm going to use my new Disney Android phone to book my trip to Disney World!"

    OR the Player.... They get boat loads of cash to plug Disney like that. Admit it; you would do it too.

    Does this mean we will start seeing Vans with "free Disney Phones" instead of "free candy" !?

    Well Disney has some serious loyal fans, can argue the same with with R2-D2 phone. I'm sure it will do good in that demographic area.
