Fujitsu Toshiba IS12T, the world’s first Windows Phone Mango device, launches on August 25
The world’s first smartphone to run the latest version of Windows Phone, called Mango, is ready to start selling. The Fujitsu Toshiba IS12T will be sold by Japanese carrier KDDI starting on August 25, which is in just a couple of days. So the wait for Mango, which was many months long, is almost finally over.
The Fujitsu Toshiba IS12T will cost 73,500 yen (approximately $960 or €664) sans contract, and 35,100 yen ($459 or €317) with a two-year contract, we found out a few days ago.
Perhaps the most striking feature of this handset, aside from the OS version it runs, is the 13.2-megapixel camera that it comes with. Now we can’t judge the camera’s quality just yet since these things are never about the megapixels alone, but still – that sounds impressive.
The IS12T also has 32 GB of internal storage space, a water-proof and dust-proof casing, and a 3.7-inch 480×800 touchscreen.
The smartphone will be available on August 25 in Hokkaido, Tohoku, Kanto, Central, Kansai, Okinawa, and Kyushu. A day later, on August 26, you’ll also find it in Chugoku, and on August 27 it will debut in Shikoku.
