In August, T-Mobile announced it will be releasing in Europe the MDA II Pocket PC phone. However, it wasn’t clear whether this model would be available in the United States. Now, new evidence has emerged that this model will be available on this side of the Atlantic.
Yesterday, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) gave its approval for the MDA II to be released in the U.S. While this isn’t a guarantee that it will be available in this country, it is a strong indication that it will be.
As T-Mobile has already officially unveiled this model, the documents filed with the FCC bring to light no significant new information about it.
The MDA II will run the Phone Edition of Windows Mobile 2003 for Pocket PC on a 400 MHz Intel XScale processor. It will have an SD slot and a 16-bit color. It will also sport an integrated digital camera capable of taking pictures at up to 640 by 480 pixels.
This handheld will run on GSM/GPRS wireless networks. It will be a tri-band device, capable of being used worldwide. It will offer both voice and data capabilities and have full multimedia messaging.
All the documentation filed with the FCC about these handhelds can be found on the government agency’s web site.
