T-Mobile Germany just sent in the official specs-sheet for the recently unveiled T-Mobile MDA Vario IV and therefore the speculation is over now. Based on HTC's Raphael reference design, the Vario IV features Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. It's powered by a Qualcomm MSM 7200 CPU at 528 MHz and supports triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE (900/1800/1900 MHz), dualband UMTS/HSDPA (850/2100 MHz) up to 7.2 Mbps as well as Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, WiFi b/g and GPS (an FM radio isn't mentioned). The MDA Vario IV is backed up by 256 MB RAM and 512 MB ROM which is expandable through microSD memory cards. Furthermore, which differentiates the MDA Vario IV (HTC Raphael) from the MDA compact IV (HTC Touch Diamond), the Vario IV features a 5-rows slide-out QWERTZ/Y keyboard:

The frameless 2.8" touchscreen supports VGA (640 x 480 pixel) and the CMOS autofucus camera supports a resolution up to 3.2 megapixel. At a size of 103 x 52 x 18.1 mm, the Vario IV weights around 158 g (including the 1340 mAh battery).

According to T-Mobile Germany, the MDA Vario IV will includes the following applications: Office Mobile (Word Mobile, Excel Mobile, PowerPoint Mobile, OneNote Mobile), Adobe PDF-Reader, Outlook Mobile, Media Player 10 Mobile, Opera Mobile 9.5, Internet Explorer Mobile, Google Maps and YouTube Mobile as well as HTC's TouchFLO 3D.

The final sales pack will include the MDA Vario IV, the battery, the charger, a mini USB to USB sync cable, a replacement stylus, a wired Stereo-headset, a pouch, a CD-ROM including the quick start guide, the manual and additional software.

A price wasn't announced yet, availability is given with later summer/early fall.

UPDATE: According to sources close to the manufacture, it's not featuring UMTS/HSDPA at 850 MHz but 900 MHz. Looks like T-Mobile has a typo in its UMTS/HSDPA specs. Furthermore I got the confirmation that the, from the HTC TyTN II (HTC Kaiser) known, tilt-screen is left and the MDA Vario IV slides-out only.
