T-Mobile Germany today announced the T-Mobile MDA compact III, better known as HTC Artemis.
The MDA compact III is a quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC Phone Edition supporting Bluetooth as well. However, unlike the original HTC Artemis reference design (an unlike O2 Germany's version of the HTC Artemis), the MDA compact III lacks W-LAN indeed, as confirmed before.
Powered by a TI OMAP 850 CPU at 201 MHz, the MDA compact III sports 128 MB ROM and 64 MB RAM which can be extended through microSD flash cards. The MDA compact III features a 2 megapixel camera for photos and videos as well as a SiRF III GPS receiver and FM radio for navigation purpose (with support of TMC).
The device isn't featuring a D-Pad or joystick anymore but featuring HTC's new RollR concept, a Trackball and Track Wheel in one:

Unlike O2 Germany and HTC, T-Mobile isn't giving an onboard navigation solution with the MDA compact III but is offering navigation via T-Mobile's own NaviGate offboard solution only.
This means that for every route calculation, the device connects via GPRS or EDGE with T-Mobile's NaviGate server to get the route calculated on the server, which transfer the route back to the device after calculation.
NaviGate is able to calculate routes for 18 European countries, a single route calculation for German costs 99 Cent (including GPRS/EDGE traffic charges).

The T-Mobile MDA compact III is available from early November and costs 189,95 Euro with a 24 month Relax 100 tariff. A price without a subscription wasn't announced yet.

Cheers ~ Arne
