Fujitsu IS12T goes on sale in Japan

Fujitsu have launched their IS12T handset, the first Windows Phone 7 Mango phone to hit the market.

Last month, Fujitsu unveiled the IS12T - the first handset running Windows Phone 7.5 a.k.a. Mango. Today, the IS12T became available in Japan via KDDI Au - Japan's second largest mobile carrier.

As we reported last month, the Fujitsu IS12T is water, shock and dust-proof and comes equipped with a 3.7-inch 800x480 resolution LCD screen, a high powered 13.2 megapixel back-mounted camera and 32GB of built-in memory. Support for DNLA-certified TVs and PCs, microUSB and GSM/CDMA is built in, and you can have it in luminous citrus or magenta, or black if you prefer your phone not to look like a jellybean.

Mango is essential for Windows Phone 7 to establish itself in Japan and the far east, as it is the first version of Windows Phone to support Japanese, Chinese and Korean character sets.

A first hands-on courtesy of TechCrunch has reported that the phone felt overly light and plasticky. Despite the slightly 'cheap' feel of the handset, initial impressions of the UI were excellent.

The handset has launched towards the higher end of the smartphone market, so if this phone finds its way to the UK, expect it to be sitting in the higher price ranges.
