During CeBIT 2006 in Hannover Germany, T-Mobile Germany first time publicly showed their latest Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition, the T-Mobile MDA Vario II.
As expected, the Vario II is based on the HTC Hermes and features quad-bang GSM, GPRS and EDGE as well as WCDMA/UMTS.
Addiitonaly it's sporting W-LAN b/g as well as Bluetooth 1.2. As the forerunner, the MDA Vario, the MDA Vario II will has a QWERTZ slide-out keyboard (for the German market). Enhanced is the camera which is a 2.1 megapixel one on the backside and a CIF on the frontside for UMTS video calls. The MDA Vario II will be powered by Windows Mobile 5.0 with (at least) AKU 2 supporting Bluetooth Stereo and Microsoft Push E-Mail via Exchange 2003 SP2.
Also it's confirmed now, that the wheel on the left side is a real scroll wheel with action functionality:

And yes, the MDA Vario II is also running with 300 MHz only which makes me wonder, that a HSDPA device can work with 300 MHz only:

Also the current demo device is already using AKU 2.0.

The planned release date in German is anytime in June, a planned release outside Germany wasn't announced yet. Also T-Mobile haven't announced any prices yet.
According to a T-Mobile spokesman, the MDA Vaio II aka HTC Hermes will has a launch-exclusivity for Germany.
