Toshiba Windows Phone IS12T – A rugged phone for tough people

The android phone industry is booming since the past few years and the phone sales are at an all-time high. There are new and continuously increasing players in the market. There are new models coming in each day and the new ones always have something better to offer than the previous ones. There is this trend of increasing number of features with decreasing price. In the past few years there is also a trend for windows software in the android phones rather than the conventional android software. They offer the same functions but with a user interface of your laptop or desktop. Some people may prefer a windows phone to an android phone. One such phone that you can help divert your attention to windows phone is the Toshiba Windows Phone IS12T. The phone is a rugged phone and a rough and tough one for you.

The phone was released and launched in July 2011. The phone has only one Sim and this is one feature that makes it look a little disadvantaged. The phone has a relatively rugged look with sharp edged corners and square shape. The phone is 118*59*10.6 mm and weighs light for the phones of its size at around 113gms. The phone is available in amazing and exceptionally different colors of citrus, magenta and black. It has a 3.7 inches TFT capacitive full touchscreen enabled for multi touch. The pixel resolution 480*800 pixels which is very low for a phone with other features up to the mark. There are three alert types of vibration, MP3 and Wav ringtones.  For all the music lovers there is a loud speaker and a 3.5 mm jack for your headphones. There is also an added incentive of Stereo FM radio with RDS. There is also a preloaded MP3 and MP4 player application. These applications have a colorful and interactive and a pleasure to use. There are other preloaded applications also like document viewer and editor, Facebook integration and predictive text input. One of the best features of the phone that makes it tough is that it is water and dust resistant. So you can carry your phone with you anytime and anywhere.

The phone runs a Microsoft Windows 7.5 Mango and has a 1 GHz Scorpion processor which is very fast and responsive. The phone has an awesome storage of 32 GB, but one biggest drawback is that there is no slot for an external micro SD card. There are conventional accelerometer and proximity sensors. The phone has a 1460mAh Li-Ion battery which gives a talk time back up of up to 6 hours and 40 minutes. There is only one camera in the phone. This is again a very disappointing feature-the absence of a secondary camera. There is a primary camera in the rear. The camera is pretty impressive and 13.2 MP. The image quality is also amazing. Overall the phone is a good choice for you if you are looking for a phone which will stand the test of sturdiness.
