When we first learned of the Fujitsu IS12T, the world’s first handset sporting Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango,” it was rumored to be showing up in the second half of August. Our hopes were crushed, however, when the company officially stated that it should be available the following month “or beyond.” Sure, a September launch would still be on right on time (given Microsoft’s intent of releasing the update this fall), but wouldn’t it be nice to see something come out ahead of schedule? Chin up, folks — the Au KDDI store in Nishi-Kasai tweeted that the IS12T will be released this coming Thursday and is already accepting preorders. And there’s more to the story: even though Nanopho reports that multiple locations are busy taking reservations, Au’s official site is still sticking to its guns about the phone’s September release. Given the tug-of-war taking place between the stores and their corporate boss, next week may turn out to be quite interesting.

Second, our friends at Diginfonews in Tokyo have shot this professional video (in English) that shows the IS12T in action:
Well, you can’t say you didn’t see this one coming. Fujitsu Toshiba mobile communications — now there’s a mouthful — just unveiled the IS12T: Japan’s first Windows Phone 7 device, and according to Microsoft prez Yasuyuki Higuchi, the world’s first Mango one. The sexy and waterproof (!) 3.7-inch WVGA slate is powered by a MSM8655 CPU of undisclosed clock speed, and goes on sale in “September or beyond” on KDDI’s au network. The pink gizmo is packing a 13.2 megapixel camera with autofocus with a plentiful 32GB of flash storage to store all those snaps. The usual Bluetooth (2.1 + EDR) and WiFi (802.11b/g/n) are also on board. Interest piqued? Peruse the gallery our Engadget Japanese brethren have handily tossed our way.
