The time has come - also for T-Mobile Germany (after O2 Germany and Vodafone Germany which introduced the HTC Hermes already): T-Mobile is launching MDA Vario II which will support, right from the start HSDPA. T-Mobile Germany's HSDPA networks offers at the moment bandwidths of up to 1.8 megabits/second and that's across the whole T-Mobile UMTS network! Users of this Windows Mobile 5.0 features Pocket PC Phone Edition can surf the Internet via web'n'walk at an ultrafast speed and access the information and entertainment services they need from anywhere. Those using the device for business will appreciate the high speed when downloading E-Mails with large attachments or researching online for example. Besides HSDPA, the integrated EDGE and W-LAN technologies in MDA Vario II also enable high-speed experience whilst on the move.
Innovative technology, sophisticated ease of use, high quality manufacturing and the smart range of colors on offer - anthracite, Bordeaux and black - are the cornerstones of the unique make-up of MDA Vario II. As a real all-rounder, the phone also offers numerous Office Mobile applications such as Word Mobile and PowerPoint Mobile based on the operating system Windows Mobile 5.0 for use on the move. Users can completely synchronize their Outlook with contact details, calendar entries, messages and so on with their device. MDA Vario II supports current E-Mail standards as well as the Microsoft E-Mail push service which T-Mobile provides as part of its MDA messaging solution. The BlackBerry Push Service can be easily installed on the device and software is supplied. For high resolution photographs and video recordings a 2 megapixel camera with close-up/macro mode and flash is built-in. A second camera on the front enables the owner to be shown during video telephony via UMTS. The side track wheel, the slide out QWERTZ keyboard, a button to hide/close completed programs and soft keys which can be allocated on the large touch screen color display mean all functions can be used quickly and easily. The large internal memory can be further extended by a plug-in micro SD card.
The MDA Vario II will be available from August 14, 2006 at a price of 699,95 Euro without a contract. Subsidized it will retail for 359.59 Euro on the Relax 100 tariff - a 24-month postpay contract.
