It is now just after midnight in Tokyo, and that means the official release date of the first new Windows Phone 7.5 Mango handset has come.Â The Fujitsu IS12T has now officially hit the market (although I suspect most stores selling the handset are now quite closed).
The smartphoneâ€™s stand-out features includes being water-resistant (IPX5/8) and dust-resistant (IP5X) technology, a 13.2 megapixel camera with smooth HD video recording and 32 GB of storage in a slim 10.6 mm thick body.
Nanapho notes the road for the device may not be that smooth in Japan, with many WP7.5 services not working there, including local scout, voice command, Bing Maps and even Marketplace has only 5000 apps there.
Would our readers buy this phone if it was brought over to the west? Let us know below.
