Last week, T-Mobile USA announced plans to offer a new Pocket PC phone. This device is now available.
This is a version of a model designed by HTC. What T-Mobile is calling the MDA was originally code-named Wizard by its designer, and is also available from other wireless carriers, including Cingular.
It 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.
In addition, it has a miniSD slot, a QVGA screen, and a 1.3 megapixel camera.
This Pocket PC is 4.3 inches wide, 2.3 inches tall, and 0.9 inches thick.
More information on the MDA can be found on T-Mobile’s web site.
Don’t Forget the SDA
At the same time the MDA was announced, T-Mobile USA also introduced the SDA.
This is another Windows Mobile 5.0 device designed by HTC, but this one runs the Smartphone version of this operating system.
It has much in common with the MDA, but is smaller and uses the traditional “candybar” design with a numberpad. It does not have a keyboard.
Exact details on the SDA are on T-Mobile’s web site.
