Microsoft, Fujitsu and KDDI launches the world first Windows Phone 7.5 in Japan

Microsoft, Fujitsu and KDDI launches the world first Windows Phone 7.5 in Japan

Under a cloudy sky at 8h40 this morning in front of Akihabara’s huge Yodobashi Camera store, Fujitsu, KDDI and Windows celebrated the world first Windows Phone 7.5 launch. And voila, it is done!
Despite this very official event, we have to admit that people where not really rushing to get one of this new Windows Phone, actually, most people at the event where 80% of the people were Journalists and the rest came from Microsoft, KDDI, Fujitsu and Yodobashi Camera.
Does this mean that Windows Phone 7.5 will be as successful in Japan as the Xbox? Too early to tell, but unless other Manufacturer are moving in bringing WP 7.5 in Japan I don’t see how this could change. And we have to remember that despite being a great company, KDDI is only rank third in Japan after Docomo and now Softank.

    I was sooo disappointed with my win7 phone. Seems a great OS but … lacked so many very very basic features!!!! Can’t even add a new ringtone, for pits sake. Has to “activate” and “register” and “use live id” and whatnot. Heck with it. It doesn’t beep-remind of received messages/missed calls (I have to manually check). Zune software is useless (can’t add a single picture w/o first configuring a whole directory to be part of the “library” etc). Then, can’t even type a SMS in the computer and put it in the phone to be sent, etc, etc

    Switching to Android.

      I too have been using a win7 phone for couple a months now and I LOVE it. Most of the been features your talking about has already been added to this version 7.5. If your phone does not alert you to received  messages and incoming calls then you need to go check ur setting  ’cos mine does, how would it be a phone if it doesnt? 

      Btw which phone nowadays does not require activation and an email address, how else would you buy apps or even download free apps, how would you sync your email and contacts. Android, iOS, Symbian all require activation and user ID. 

      I’d encourage you to wait and try 7.5 before jumping to Android if you don’t like it.

      With Windows Phone 7.5, like with this Fujitsu, you can add your own ringtones.

      Sure, you can use Android without a Google account. However by adding one you get more use out of the Google apps and integration. Just like you can use Windows Phone and run apps without a Windows Live ID. Or a Google account, or a Facebook account, or a Twitter account, or a LinkedIn account. But add those accounts and you’ll see your phone come to life and actually act really smart like nothing else.

      Obviously the desktop Zune software on Windows is useless if you prefer to manage and manually copy randomly stored media files to your tethered Android phone. But smart people that leverage the power of Windows media libraries and Zune will probably also enjoy that it can let Windows Phone sync media files wirelessly when they come home.

      This is Mango Wp7.5 that fixes many of your shortcomings. You have to register your various accounts’ credentials on your phone 1 time only. 
      Anyway hope Akihabaranews will make a review…COMPLETE WITH UNDERWATER TESTING!!!

      Why is the ability to add a ring tone one of the more important features to users?  A basic feature?  For “pits” sake!
