On Microsoft's Pocket PC Phone Edition sky, two new stars are going to appear (sooner or later): HTC's Blue Angel (better known as T-Mobile MDA III or Qtek 9090) and Motorola's MPx Pocket PC Phone Edition.
While the Blue Angel is following the slider concept we already know from mobile phones, I would call the MPx a kind of convertible (known from Windows XP Tablet PCs) which means it can be used as a kind of clam-shell mobile phone or stylus based Pocket PC but also as a kind of keyboard driven "micro-subnotebook".

Both devices will include triple band GSM/GPRS as well as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and therefore it becomes more a question of taste, which one is/might be the better one or better fits your needs:

While both devices have their benefits I wonder what you think and what you would prefer? The "slider" concept or the "convertible" concept?

If you need deeper views, I would recommend's detailed French MPx review here and's Norwegian Blue Angel preview here.
