YotaPhone inks manufacturing deal, plans to launch in the second half of 2013

Did you think that Russia’s YotaPhone was consigned to the island of misfit concept devices? The company has just inked a production deal with Singapore-based OEM Hi-P international, with YotaPhone planning to launch the handset globally in the second half of 2013. While Hi-P isn’t a name you should be familiar with, a cursory search reveals that it’s previously produced hardware for Apple, RIM BlackBerry and, most notably, Amazon’s E-Reader division. At the same time, the Russian business is opening up an R&D center in Singapore to help research “subsequent generations of YotaPhone,” so it looks like Janus devices could be here to stay.
