T-Mobile USA Launching Two Windows Mobile Devices

by Reads (7,926)

T-Mobile USA has just started offering a new Windows Mobile smartphone, and this carrier also announced plans to add a second model later this month.

Both of these are versions of devices designed by HTC. The one available now, which T-Mobile is calling the SDA, is more commonly known as the Tornado, while the second smartphone — the MDA — is code-named Wizard.

T-Mobile SDA Although these two devices have very different designs, they have a great deal in common.

Each of them are EDGE- and GPRS-capable and come with integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth,

In addition, each has a miniSD slot, a QVGA screen, and a 1.3 megapixel camera.

There are some significant differences, though.

The T-Mobile SDA runs the the Smartphone version of Windows Mobile 5.0. It uses the traditional “candybar” design with a numberpad. It does not have a keyboard.

T-Mobile MDA The MDA, on the other hand, has a built-in keyboard located on a slider so it can be hidden behind the screen. It runs the Pocket PC version of Windows Mobile 5.0.

As mentioned earlier, the SDA is available now, both at T-Mobile retail stores and the company’s web site. It costs $250 after a rebate.

The MDA will launch on February 21. T-Mobile has not announced what it will cost, but, according to earlier leaked information, the price will be $400 before any rebates.
