Microsoft Japan holds Windows 10 Mobile event
During an event held in Japan today, Microsoft Japan president Takuya Hirano revealed the names of some companies that are going to be manufacturing handsets powered by Windows 10 Mobile. The companies include VAIO, Acer, NuAns, Thirdwave, Freetel and Mouse Computer. Some of those manufacturers brought along handsets to show off, and some of these models have already been introduced.

Tiny NuAns, with only 15 people in the company, brought along the NuAns NEO to the event. The phone was built from the ground up, and features a unique design with the lower half of the phone showing off a wood-like finish. Also appearing at the event was the Diginnos Mobile DG-W10M from Thirdwave. This model features a 5-inch display with a 720 x 1280 resolution. A quad-core CPU is under the hood, and the handset comes with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal, expandable storage. An 8MP camera is found in back, with a 2MP shooter in front for selfies and video chats. The phone supports 4G LTE connectivity.

VAIO brought a mock-up to the event, and said that its Windows Mobile 10 phone is under development. The device is expected to be for business users and will support Continuum. This unit won't see the light of day until early next year. Acer, on the other hand, displayed the Acer Liquid M330, a model it already unveiled last month. The handset carries a 4.5-inch LCD screen with a 480 x 854 resolution. The Snapdragon 210 SoC drives the device, carrying a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 304 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside and an 8MP camera can be found on both sides of the phone. A fingerprint scanner is on the back. The Liquid M330 is expected to be released in December.

While Jenesis brought along a Windows 10 Mobile "reference model," Freetel came with the Katana 02. Already unveiled back in June, the unit is equipped with a 5-inch screen carrying a 720 x 1280 resolution. The handset offers 23GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and is kept alive by a 2600mAh battery. The device will be priced at the equivalent of $250 USD.
