Oh Japan and KDDI, you're sure showing us Yanks up on how to market your phones. In what has to be one of the coolest demonstrations of Windows Phone, KDDI, who has released the Fujitsu IS12T in Japan, made a Flash animation project called a People Hub Generator.
In short, you allow it connect to your Facebook where it pulls in your friend's photos, your info etc. (don't worry, it's for a cool reason). You then watch a bunch of Windows Phone workers running around "making" your People Hub, but on the tiles instead of generic people you'll find all of your friends and even your profile picture within the mini-film itself. Yes, George Lucas would be impressed.
Other than that it doesn't do anything but you can then share the film on Facebook. We think it's a neat way to show off Windows Phone though. Give it a shot here: http://www.au-windowsphone.jp/

That is amazing. Just, wow. I wish that was a more universal concept for all of Windows Phone and not just that brand. Wow.
Wow, very impressive!
Now that is AWESOME!!
I don't think that new. The Windows Phone Facebook site allows you to do that. Its been there since the launch of wp7
I really find it weird that WP7 is going to KDDI. KDDI is the primary Android carrier in Japan, Softbank carries iPhone.When I was in the country recently I spoke to some reps and they said that doccomo was going to get the WP7. Interesting
well, it wasn't exactly like that, but it does allow you to see your facebook stuff in a wp7 demo.
Absolutely cool. I dug it. Daniel Rubino does it again. Good find.
