An the next one. Germany is definitely the Pocket PC Phone Edition-heaven. After the T-Mobile and O2 announcement to launch the HTC Wizard during this month, today I found out that also German E-Plus is planning to launch the HTC Wizard as "E-Plus Pocket PDA".
In E-Plus latest sales flyer, E-Plus has it in the list of "Business-Phones", together with a BlackBerry, the Treo 650, E-Plus' UMTS PC card, etc (sorry for the picture quality...):
Unfortunately the sales man neither couldn't give me an estimated price nor the estimated arrival/availability but the flyer is available from 1st November until 30th November.
Also unknown is, if the E-Plus Pocket PDA is a generic Qtek device (as E-Plus sold it in the past) or if this is the start for E-Plus to sell their own, self-customized Windows Mobile devices too.
Nevertheless, this could be an interesting offer since E-Plus is the only German carrier who is offering a true, unlimited GPRS/UMTS flat-rate. Okay, the Wizard isn't supporting UMTS but GPRS only but the E-Plus flat-rate (which costs 49 Euro per month) also works for GPRS and therefore with the Wizard too.
Right now, the Wizard isn't published on E-Plus' website or in the online shop but pre-announced through the sales flyer only.
