Right after HTC announced the new HTC Touch Diamond2 and HTC Touch Pro2 yesterday, today T-Mobile unveiled as the first operator to carry both Windows Mobile smartphones as the T-Mobile MDA Compact V and T-Mobile MDA Vario V.
The T-Mobile MDA Compact V - which is HTC's Touch Diamond2 but comes in an exclusive T-Mobile design - is a feature rich touchscreen Internet device. Offering T-Mobile's newest web'n'walk service, a large 3.2" WVGA display, high speed HSDPA (up to 7.2 Mbit/s), WiFi and GPS, the T-Mobile MDA Compact V is a highly desirable phone built for the mobile Internet age.

The Compact V will first launch in Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Netherlands and UK by June 2009.

The T-Mobile MDA Vario V - which is HTC's Touch Pro2 - joins the T-Mobile MDA Compact V as another web'n'walk enabled phone, further strengthening T-Mobile's position as a leader in mobile Internet services. The device features a full QWERTY keyboard with kick-tail mechanism, a WVGA screen, GPS and HSDPA (up to 7.2 Mbit/s).

It will first launch in Austria, Czech Republic, Germany,Netherlands and UK in June 2009.

Both the T-Mobile MDA Compact V and T-Mobile MDA Vario V use Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1 for improved mobile Internet browsing. T-Mobile and Microsoft look forward to continuing this strong partnership in 2009.

Prices weren't announced today; also it wasn't confirmed that T-Mobile will offer Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrades as soon as available.

Cheers ~ Arne

Hi Arne,
did you get a chance to test the keyboard of the Vario V?
Looks like a foil keyboard and not a "real" keyboard like the touch pro.
Cheers,
Ralf

Yes, I tested it! It's actually better than the original Touch Pro keyboard. HTC got a lot of positive (and negative) feedback about the 1st Touch Pro and tried to improve with the Pro2. I wouldn't say that anything is a step backward yet but as far as I've seen, it's a serious step forward. Nevertheless, I will have another meeting with HTC tomorrow where I have another chance to test!
