Fujitsu’s Windows Phone Mango handset priced in Japan
Announced at the end of July as the world’s first Windows Phone Mango device, the Fujitsu IS12T should become available in Japan starting next moth (September). Until then, in case you’re wondering how much the IS12T will cost, we have answers for you – at least in regards to the handset’s price in Japan.
According to Ameblo, the Windows Phone Mango will be sold by KDDI for 73,500 yen (about $958 or €665) off-contract, or 35,100 yen ($457 or €318) with a new 2-yr contract agreement. Certainly, for Europe and North America, these prices are way too steep, but for Japan they’re probably OK.
In any case, Fujitsu said nothing about the launch of the IS12T outside Japan. But it would be a shame for the handset to remain there, since it’s not only the first Mango phone, but also the first WP device to be waterproof and to feature a 13MP camera.
