The just released Fujitsu-Toshiba IS12T is the world's first smartphone to feature Microsoft's Mango (Windows Phone 7.5) operating system. Along with other improvements, Mango promises to bring multitasking, a much-improved email client, and Twitter and Skype integration down at the OS level. Mango is supported by 25GB of available server space through Windows Live Skydrive, Microsoft's free cloud service, which reportedly can be used for music and video streaming.
As for the device, the IS12T is semi-waterproof and dust-resistant and features a 3.7-inch screen and 13.2MP auto focus rear camera. Other features include 32GB of internal memory, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, and both CDMA and GSM connectivity for global use.
The IS12T is expected to be available in September in black, citrus, and magenta (Mango's three tile interface colors) on the Japanese carrier KDDI. The presence of CDMA and GSM may make device importers like Expansys consider the IS12T for distribution in the United States and Europe. I certainly would consider picking one up if it was available.
