According to different sources, the T-Mobile MDA (equal to the O2 xda but with a little bit different design) is ready to be released soon at least in Germany. Today no word was given about an introduction in the US American VoiceStream network. Also the European MDA differentiates from the American as the European one will be launched as dual-band supporting GSM 900/1800 MHz while the US MDA will support 900/1900 MHz.

UPDATE: According to the latest information, the MDA should be launched on 15.07. - which is next Monday! Still no word about other T-Mobile subsidiaries like Austria, USA or UK. Seems as Germany becomes the #1 PPC Phone Edition country... ;-)

As far as I've heard also, T-Mobile is planning to introduce - right with the launch of the German MDA - a Pocket PC optimized Web portal. This should includes at least all T-Mobile WAP categories like:

  • t-info with location based services
  • t-news with news headlines from the world to economy news to the weather forecast
  • t-sports with live news from football, Formula One and others
  • t-music with latest music information and some downloads
  • t-games with downloadable games and ringtones

Later this year, T-Mobile also plans to introduce a Tegaron Scout version for the MDA like already available for the Compaq iPAQ and Trium Mondo.

A final price wasn't given today and also no words about any kind of SIM-Lock. Interests can register themselves on the German T-Mobile site to get the latest information about the launch via E-Mail.

Cheers ~ Arne

I don't have any timing, but Voicestream (T-Mobile subsidiary in the US) had a PocketPC Phone Edition café at PCXpo last month in the Microsoft booth.  They had about 40 XDAs or so available for attendees to play around with and make a phone call on the Voicestream network.  It was pretty impressive, although I'm hesitant to give up the 802.11b connectivity available with my iPAQ.  What I really want is a bluetooth phone to access my iPAQ for phonebook and allow GPRS connections from the iPAQ.

I appears from a few sites in america that the Pocket PC phone will be released on monday also.

This is according to discussions with a voicestream rep at a recent show.

Talked to voicestream, They are saying that it won't be released in the us Until the completion of the transition to T-mobile.  Which should occur by sept.
