Toshiba-Fujitsu IS12T to be first Mango phone

Toshiba-Fujitsu held a special event in Tokyo in the evening that gave it the distinction of being the first with a Windows Phone 7 Mango device. The IS12T is a close cousin of the Regza phone but has the unique touch of being waterproof and dust-resistant to IPX5 and IPX8 levels. It also packs one of the most powerful cameras of any phone with a 13.2-megapixel sensor.

The design goes above official Mango chassis specs. It uses the soon to be ubiquitous second-generation, 1GHz Snapdragon MSM8655 chip at its heart, but it has a large 32GB of built-in storage. A 3.7-inch, 480x800 LCD provides the view into the OS.

Mango brings multi-tasking, an IE9-based browser, integrated Twitter, turn-by-turn GPS, voice-guided text and several other major additions that bring it up to par and sometimes ahead. Third-party apps will have direct access to the camera and can make truly live home tiles that update in real time.

Japanese will see the IS12T in stores sometime in September through KDDI, giving credence to beliefs that other Windows Phones will launch at the same time. Toshiba-Fujitsu isn't likely to spread its exact model but is bound to have close equivalents from partners like HTC, LG, and Samsung. [via Impress]
