Mouse Computer MADOSMA Windows Phone Japan

Microsoft has many challenges in the mobile world, and one of them is cracking the Japanese market. Previously, the company had a few offerings and partnerships, specifically with Toshiba for Windows Phone 7 (the Toshiba-Fujitsu IS12T from 2012). Since then, the OS has floundered there even worse than in the US.

Now, Mouse Computer, a Japanese PC OEM, who has some significant presence in the region, is detailing their new Windows Phone. Named MADOSMA (Mado = window in Japanese. Sma = Smartphone) the device sports some decent mid-range specifications.

Overall, the phone looks to share many of the same features as white-label phones like the BLU Win HD LTE. In fact, another Japanese company named Freetel is releasing a rebranded Win HD LTE sometime this summer. This release would mark at least two new Windows Phone for the Japanese market, hopefully boosting the 1% MIcrosoft market share in that country.

Mouse Computer and Microsoft had previously announced a partnership nearly two months ago. However, no word on exact pricing or availability has been announced.
