Today more information of the recently announced T-Mobile MDA compact II became available. So unlike expected, the HTC Magician follower (based on the HTC Charmer) will not has W-LAN but features Windows Mobile 5.0 and 128 MB RAM only!
Wireless-wise, the compact II got an upgrade from GSM/GPRS tri-band to quad-band (appreciated for US customers which increases the chance to see the compact II released by T-Mobile USA also).
Unfortunately, HTC has changed the CPU and "downgraded" the Charmer from the 300 MHz Intel Bulverde CPU to a 200 MHz TI OMAP 850 CPU 8which seems to be the same as used by the HTC Wizard). The camera is unchanged with 1.3 megapixel (only) without a photo-light.
Last but not least, the new MDA compact II features Bluetooth 1.2, IrDA und USB. The MDA compact II should becomes available end of November and should costs 499 Euro without a contract.
