First Windows Phone Mango handset announced - the waterproof Toshiba-Fujitsu IS12T
We first saw it at Microsoft's WPC 2011 event not long ago, where the presenter hinted that the phone has a "great camera" and, indeed the Toshiba-Fujitsu IS12T sports a 13.2MP shooter with flash and various photographic options complementing the sensor.
Add this to the fact that the handset is waterproof as many Japanese smartphones are, plus the 32GB of internal memory, and we can only drool at what the folks in the land of the Rising Sun are getting. The other specs are more run-of-the-mill - Qualcomm MSM8655 processor, and a 3.7" display with 480x800 pixels, but the Toshiba-Fujitsu IS12T is quite thin at 0.42" (10.6mm) and light at just 4 ounces (113g).
The handset comes in yellow, pink and black, so its fans will span from the Hello Kitty types to the serious businessman who would appreciate the Microsoft Office and cloud services integration in this first WIndows Phone Mango handset.
Moreover, the presenters said that the phone will be available after September, and we posted that Mango just went RTM, so September seems right on schedule for the first major update of Microsoft's mobile OS. Have a look at a video of the whole launch event below.
