Not too much is known yet but T-Mobile has unveiled today that the German mobile operator will show its latest Windows Mobile Professional smartphone during this week's CeBIT. T-Mobile Germany calls it the "MDA compact IV" and according to Deutsche Telekom's press release, it will features a an exclusive T-Mobile design, HSDPA, a 3 megapixel autofocus camera, 4 GB internal memory and a VGA (640x480) touchscreen.
While T-Mobile hasn't unveiled a photo of the device yet, it can be expected that this is another Windows Mobile smartphone and Deutsche Telekom released this rendering (which clearly shows a Windows Mobile Standard smartphone rather than a Professional smartphone which the compact IV has to be if it features a touchscreen):

With a 24 months Relax 100 plan, the MDA compact IV will be available from May 2008 for 111 Euro.

UPDATE: Sources close to the company confirmed us that the new MDA compact IV is based on a new, yet unknown HTC Windows Mobile Professional smartphone which most likely runs on Windows Mobile 6.1. Other expected features are quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and triband UMTS/HSDPA up to 7.2 Kbps, Bluetooth 2.0 and WiFi b/g. GPS support isn't confirmed yet.

UPDATE: Indeed is T-Mobile showing on its CeBIT stand exactly the same device we have exclusively pictured above, including the Home and Back keys. So, according to T-Mobile's CeBIT stand, the device you see above is the "MDA compact IV"! T-Mobile declined to comment the design-inconsistency and further features.
