After T-Mobile Germany and O2 UK's Xda Orbit announcement, now also T-Mobile UK announced the launch of the MDA Compact III (better known as HTC Artemis), the second mobile device available from a UK mobile operator with built-in GPS satellite receiver.
Available with CoPilot Live 6 satellite navigation, the MDA Compact III makes dedicated navigation systems redundant, with turn-by-turn voice instructions, detailed street mapping and powerful route calculation for navigation in-car or on foot. With its integrated jog wheel and touch screen, the device makes it easy to enter a destination and follow the comprehensive door-to-door directions. web'n'walk customers will be able to take advantage of free real-time traffic alerts and avoidance, delivered directly into CoPilot via the T-Mobile GPRS network.

With one touch of the screen, the MDA Compact III provides faster-access to making calls, surfing the internet, checking E-Mails, downloading music and listening to the radio - making it the perfect multi-media companion for those on-the-move.

The MDA Compact III is web'n'walk-enabled, providing customers with simple, open Internet access. The device is pre-installed with a web browser that enables users to view web pages as they could on their PC.

The device is based on the Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system, and comes complete with Microsoft Office, providing customers with key applications such as Microsoft Outlook. Users can view and edit both Word and Excel documents as well as view PowerPoint and PDF files.

The MDA Compact III comes with a range of E-Mail options, enabling users to stay in contact whenever they want. The device comes preinstalled with Microsoft Direct Push, as well as offering BlackBerry Connect in the box, as an alternative.

Characteristic of the Compact handset range, the MDA Compact III has a large touch screen, which can be easily switched from landscape to portrait mode. The device also includes an integrated 2 mega pixel camera and Bluetooth connectivity.

Derek Williamson, Head of Business Marketing, T-Mobile UK says, "We are seeing increasing demand for handsets which offer a range of functionalities, including satellite navigation, to support our increasingly busy lives. The MDA Compact III is a great device for both consumer and business users who require a handset which is flexible to the needs of their lifestyles."

The MDA Compact III will be available from T-Mobile stores and online at www.t-mobile.co.uk from 16th November and will cost £19.99 when purchased on the Flext 35 tariff plus web'n'walk (£30.00 per month).
