File this under: cool feature

Turns out a lot of phones in Japan have an earthquake early warning system built in, giving notice to the user via an alert before an earthquake which may just give the user enough time to find that door frame for safety.

Luckily, the Toshiba-Fujitsu IS12T is no different as it features the app/system built into the phone. Tezawaly from NanaPho lets us know that it works too:

"On August 1st, 6.1-magnitude earthquake hit Shizuoka Japan. The warning arrived on IS12T a few seconds before the earthquake hit. It has two button "save" and "close". You can save it as a SMS clicking on the save button."

Now that's a smartphone if you ask us and we're glad those in Japan can have this potential life-saving tool built into that Windows Phone, exclusively for KDDI.
