Mouse Computer looks to release Windows 10 Mobile phablet in Japan

Microsoft’s Windows 10 Mobile strategy clearly includes working with Windows OEMs, some traditional, some not, to make smartphones and complement Microsoft’s own devices. So far, we’ve seen a number of companies announce new Windows 10 Mobile smartphones such as HP’s Elite x3 superphone and VAIO’s Phone Biz all-metal version. Some smaller and less well-known companies are also joining in the fray.

Mouse Computer, a Japanese hardware maker, is planning its own Windows 10 Mobile device (via Engadget Japan). Dubbed the MADOSMA Q601, the midrange device will offer the following specs:

  • 6″ Full HD screen (1920X1080)
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 617
  • 3GB RAM, 32GB storage
  • 13MP rear-facing campera, 5MP front-facing camera
  • 3900 mAh battery

The Snapdragon 617 enables Windows 10 Mobile’s Continuum feature. The smartphone looks to be made of machine metal and will be relatively thin at 7.9mm. So far, we’re not expecting the device to make its way out of Japan and pricing and availability so far remain unknown.
