Here we go - I was right when I said that T-Mobile's previously unveiled MDA Vario III will be most likely the HTC Kaiser. Today, T-Mobile Germany confirmed the launch of the MDA Vario III during the IFA late next month (as expected) and indeed it's the HTC Kaiser (what else).
Also, as expected, the T-Mobile MDA Vario III will supports HSDPA phase II at 3.6 Mbps (but not HSDPA phase III at 7.2 Mbps). Further highlights are Windows Mobile 6 Professional, quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as triband UMTS/HSDPA (sorry - still no UMTS support for T-Mobile USA).

Furthermore the MDA Vario III supports WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.0 and GPS. Powered by a Qualcomm MSM7200 CPU at 400 MHz, the device sports 256 MB ROM and 128 MB RAM which can be extended with microSD cards as well as a 3 megapixel CMOS camera with autofocus on the backside and a front facing camera for UMTS video telephony.

Not yet announced was the price. Also it's unknown if and when the T-Mobile Vario III will be launched in other countries. So far, T-Mobile Germany confirmed the availability for Germany in September only.

Cheers ~ Arne

Hi there,

I spoke to Vodafone the other day and they confirmed that the Kaiser will make it as a Vodafone branded device as well, due to be delivered in August/September. That is exciting! And it will allow me to swap my Trinity for a Kaiser...

Any chance Kaiser will make it to the US market (AT&T) to replace the 8525 (Hermes/TyTn)?  If so, any known dates?

Yes, indeed there are some good chances to see it at AT&T as well.
There are some rumors in the Internet that AT&T definitely plans to launch it later this year (which makes sense).
And there is even a video available which shows a preproduction unit with AT&T branding: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PP637Mq4qHA
