Fujitsu IS12T is certainly not made for Windows Phone Tango
We learned recently that Windows Phone Tango will be designed for low-cost devices and will start in Asia, but the Fujitsu IS12T is definitely not a low-cost device. Based on an exchange rate of 76 yen to $1 USD, the prices from KDDI-AU are:
- New retail price $958
- MNP retail price $753
- New price with 2-year contract $458
- MNP price with 2-year contract $252
(MNP price is for NTT DoCoMo and Softbank users switching to KDDI)
Sure, the internal storage, camera, and Japan-centric features are nice, but the CPU and screen certainly don't warrant prices like that. Let's hope that if this phone does find its way overseas, the price comes down.
