REGRESS: T-Mobile's SDA II is Windows Mobile 2003 only

Oh, that's real bad news! Instead of moving forward, T-Mobile Germany is regressing with its lately announced SDA II Windows Mobile Smartphone because it is based on Windows Mobile 2003 not as expected (by me) on Windows Mobile 5.0 aka Magneto.
This means, it's basically the same device as the Orange C550 (HTC Hurricane) instead of using the newer HTC Tornado platform which is a Windows Mobile 5.0 device.
So no, the SDA II isn't the T-Mobile version of the recently announced Qtek 8310 series but only the Orange C550 in a different ID:

That's definitely bad news and I have expected something more innovative than just updating the current SDA series with a QVGA screen only! :-(

The SDA II will be available from beginning September for 79,95 Euro, togehter with a T-Mobile Relax 100 24 month contract.

Cheers ~ Arne

In the specs for this phone, it says Resolution is 320 x 240.
I thought WM2003SE for Smartphone did not support 320 x 240?

No, with introduction of Second Edition, Microsoft changed the screen size policy and also introduced QVGA for Smartphones.
The first QVGA Smartphone was the Orange SPV C550 which is also using 2003SE only but supporting QVGA.

Excellent, thanks for the clarification.
