Last week I wrote about the MMS client on the T68(i) and its counterpart an the Pocket PC. On the same day, Vodafone Germany launched its MMS service in Germany.

That's near half a year earlier than originally planned by Vodafone. Also - as far as I know - Vodafone Germany is the first GSM operator worldwide which launched it commercially. Unfortunately not so much MMS enables mobile phones are available today nor are any MMS clients are available for commercial download.

This takes me back to the beginning of the GSM age where GSM stands for "God Sends Mobiles". That's the pity at the GSM world that services are never introduced on the same time in the networks and with the availability of the required handsets as seen before with the introduction of GSM by itself which was launched by operators half a year before the first mobile phones was available and later with WAP and GPRS and now MMS.

Anyway, I try to get a device/Pocket PC client to give you a first overview soon. Check out also Vodafone's Flash tour of its MMS service. A nice add-on is Vodafone's web interface where you can send MMS messages to MMS enabled terminals. This is more than useful if you currently don't own a MMS phone.
