Today, T-Mobile UK announced the launch of its latest Microsoft based device, the MDA Vario (also known as HTC Wizard). The newest addition to T-Mobile's stable, the MDA Vario delivers a powerful communications experience for business professionals requiring a feature-rich device to support their hectic, always-on-the-go lifestyle.
The MDA Vario comes fully loaded with Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 software, including Pocket Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook, providing business professionals with access to critical business information where they want it, when they need it. The device also includes an email setup Wizard to quickly configure with Gmail, Yahoo, BT, and AOL to pick up email on the move.
The T-Mobile web'n'walk enabled MDA Vario provides simple, open Internet access. All T-Mobile web'n'walk devices are pre-installed with a web browser which allows customers to access the open internet and view web pages as they would on their PC.
The MDA Vario can also be purchased with the latest flexible satellite navigation system CoPilot Live 6, which provides turn by turn voice guidance door to door. With the latest street maps pre-loaded, and real time traffic alerts, CoPilot Live 6 is packed with advanced features and customized to avoid or favor certain road types, set average road speeds, or create driving profiles for use at different times of day such as rush hour.
A sleek functional QWERTY keyboard slides from the MDA Vario's casing, allowing
easy text entry for text email and checking your latest ebay purchase.
Alternatively information can also be entered via a stylus on the touch screen.
Complementing the device's rich office environment is a 1.3 mega-pixel camera,
which allows for high quality picture and video capture, ideal for embedding
multimedia in presentations and documents.
MDA Vario provides a variety of connectivity options, including quad band
capability, as well as GSM, GPRS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
Simon Ainslie, T-Mobile UK Director of Business Sales, said: "T-Mobile's MDA
Vario offers a fantastic all-round mobile working experience with data,
Internet, office systems and communications always accessible and available.
T-Mobile is once again taking the lead in transforming the way people live and
work by supporting their need for access to information and communication
The MDA Vario is now available from T-Mobile stores nationwide and on-line at
www.t-mobile.co.uk (even if I can not find it online yet but it's just a matter of time, I'm sure) with a web'n'walk pay monthly contract from Ã‚Â£30 per month.
The cost of the device is dependent on the price plan selected and the most a
customer would pay is Ã‚Â£189.99.
