Fujitsu IS12T to be a premium product, $460 on 2 year contract, $960 unlocked
If anyone has been labouring under the misconception that Windows Phone 7 mango handsets will be cheap the recently leaked price of the Fujitsu IS12T will came as a rude awakening.
One of KDDIs subsidiary stores posted the price list for the device, and it shows the handset to be $958 off contract, $753 for new subscribers and $458 on a two year contract, with new subscribers getting the handset for $252.
Of course all this does buy one a 13 megapixel camera and 32 GB of storage in a dual CDMA and GSM device, not to mention available in multiple colours and waterproof, but even for the Japanese market the price appears on the expensive side.
Of course ultimately, if we want all the features we have to pay for them also, but certainly the high price of this handset will not help it undercut similar Android offerings.
