If there’s one thing that most Internet users in Southeast Asia agree on, it’s Yahoo! Mail. The most popular email service in the region, Yahoo! Mail is number one in Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Malaysia, and a strong second in Singapore (Source: Comscore, Sept. 2010).
Last week’s release of Yahoo! Mail Beta gave our more than 16 million regional email users a reason to celebrate. Now that Yahoo! Mail Beta is live, we at Yahoo! Southeast Asia thought we would try to add one little cherry on top. After knocking around a few ideas with our crack UED team, designers of sights like Yahoo! OMG Indonesia and Yahoo! Movies Singapore, we decided that users in Southeast Asia and around the world might like a few wallpapers to trick-out their PC desktop with the same styles that we used to redesign Yahoo! Mail Beta. So, today we are happy to present two flashy Yahoo! Mail Beta wallpapers, a gift from Yahoo! Southeast Asia to our users in the region, and all of the 273 million Yahoo! Mail users worldwide.
Yahoo! Mail Beta wallpapers are a way for Yahoo! Southeast Asia to say thanks for making an email product that meets the needs of users in our region. Yahoo! Mail Beta’s focus on speed is a direct response to markets like Indonesia, Vietnam, and Philippines, where fast Internet connections and computing power are harder to come by. Yahoo Mail Beta’s tight social integration will also be a big hit in our region, especially in Indonesia, home of the world’s third-largest Facebook user base and the world’s highest concentration of Twitter users (Source: Comscore, Sept. 2010). Better mobile email access is also a big win in Southeast Asia, where mobile Internet use is skyrocketing, and in Singapore, the country with the world’s highest penetration of iOS devices (Source: Ad Mob, April 2010). And of course, all of our users will appreciate Yahoo! Mail Beta’s great spam protection, unlimited storage, and easy-to-use interface.
Each Yahoo! Mail Beta wallpaper comes in four different sizes, since we know that all PC desktop screens are not created equal.

And if you like them, let your friends know too. You could even send them an email with the good news!
