Toshiba-Fujitsu reveal IS12T with Windows Phone "Mango"

As expected, the press conference with KDDI/AU, Microsoft Japan and Toshiba-Fujitsu just wrapped up. The big news of course those is the revealing of the IS12T, one of the first official "Mango" phones to be made available in the coming weeks.

Here are the device specs, given during the presentation:

  • 32GB memory
  • 3 colors: Yellow, Pink, Black
  • Waterproof
  • MSM8655
  • 3.7" TF LCD screen
  • 13.2 MP camera (!)
  • 59x118x10.6mm
  • 113g

Release date appears to be on track for September or after, a bit later than previously reported. We have to admit, with a 13MP camera, waterproof, 32GB of memory and those fun colors, this could be a big seller in Japan.

  • Ooh, looks real nice, 13mp camera!..but no front-facing camera???
  • Maybe it's just me, but I think they're kinda...fugly.
  • It's not just you... Plus, I don't know if I would trust the build quality of a brand that's yet to establish its self in the mobile space. (ie: DELL)
  • I thought they are well established in Japan already?
  • 発表会の数時間前、米国時間で7月日には Windows Phone Mango!That is all.
  • I like them. Looks better than the Sea Ray.
  • Holy **** those are nice specs.
  • My Focus am jealous. :(
  • **** specs.
  • yay to physical buttons.
  • That's one thing that bothers me on my HD7. I have accidentally hit the search button or Windows button far too many times. It's especially irritating when I am in the middle of a game and all of a sudden I have Bing search in front of me. Many games doen't always pick up where they left off. Naturally since this is a work phone I am almost never playing games on it :)
  • Yes, dear god yes! Give me a phone with 4.0"> screen and hardware buttons on the front instead of this stupid capacative garbage and I'll be onboard in a second.
  • Aside from the smallish screen and apparent lack of a front facing camera, I'm digging it. I'd love to see 32GB as the standard for storage memory in higher end Windows Phones. I'm seriously doubting if a 13MP is even practical on that processor, particularly when using photo editing apps.
  • That CPU comes with an Adreno 205, an improvement over the old 200. Also, the MSM8655 can go all the way up to 1.4 Ghz. So, I guess the specs are confirmed to support at least:Adreno 200 or 2051 Ghz QSD8250 or MSM8655 (up to 1.4 Ghz)
  • Some aspects of the design I'm not huge on (I prefer capacative buttons), but kudos to T-F's design team for doing something DIFFERENT. And as for the specs, hopefully this sets the bar for other OEMs (particularly the 32GB memory, which, last I checked, is above the minimum requirements for WP7/Mango).
  • Awesome, been waiting for AU to open the WP7 website!The device looks like it will do well in the Japanese market. Looks really good, and the specs is really appealing. Much better than my Surround.But did anyone notice? On the black model.Gray tiles?Does that mean that we will have a new theme color on Mango?! :D
  • Carriers (and I assume Manufacturers) have the ability to add custom theme colours to the OS, even pre-nodo.
  • No front camera ?3.7" display ? I guess I'll wait till release. It's a nice phone but, not that great looking. It might do well in Japan tho...
