Windows Mobile 5 Coming to T-Mobile Next Month

T-Mobile put a page online this week for subscribers to pre-register for Windows Mobile 5 devices. Next month they will begin offering two of the many Windows Mobile devices offered by their European parent. The MDA is a Pocket PC phone based on the HTC Wizard. It features quad-band GSM/GPRS (EDGE), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 1.3 MP camera and slide out QWERTY keyboard. The SDA offers all the same features in a handset-shaped design - including a QVGA resolution screen. Since it has a traditional keypad, the SDA does not have a slide out keyboard. Cingular launched the 2125 Windows Mobile 5 Smartphone this week. It is similar to the SDA but lacks Wi-Fi and the dedicated music playback buttons.

MDA and SDA for T-Mobile

Shocked

Time will tell if these work out for T-Mobile, I remeber the nightmare of the HP 6315, i hated that phone with a passion. It would appear that the companies whom buy software from Microsoft don't really care how reliable the OS is. I think they should rename the product to Windows Crash 5.0.
I agree to some point since I fix computers for a living. MS can be a pain in all arenas but these phones have received good reviews so far from people already using them. Just check under Phones -> HTC and then select the correct phone. I am still...

It was not the OS that was the flaw with the 6315. It was the single core TI 195 Proc. It got bogged down with intensive programs or multi tasking. I own the MDA (htc wizard) and it is a great device! Everyone will be very happy with it.

SDA not GSM 850? Why not the Faraday?

First of all I am new to this whole phone techie arena. I have used them for years but I have never been a phone junkie. These phones do look nice but I have noticed that the SDA is not GSM 850 compatable (if it is the model I am looking at) but the Faraday is. From what I understand T-Mobile has 1900 on all towers and is adding 850 to most. If this is true why would they add a phone that supports GSM 900 and not the Faraday that supports GSM 850 like Cingular does? Both phones are made by HTC so it's not a brand thing. Here is a link to a comparison: http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/compare.php? id%5B%5D=788&id%5B%5D=800&id%5B%5D=&id%5B%5D= &id%5B%5D=

This is the same phone I see in all the pictures but maybe the SDA is a special US...

Kind of an unbeatable combination: Great phones, service and prices. Go Steelers.

Stoked? No! But I am happy with T-Mobile and glad I moved from Verizon but that's another topic.

Twisted Evil denver broncos lol!
I am so glad that we are getting more devices like these. I admit that T-mobile is slow to get new phones, but I also think that it is better than Cingular, who puts out phones, as quickly as they discontinue them.

I had predicted that
after EDGE launch, T-Mobile will run on fast lane
we see some nice phones (V360, T809, PEBL)
and some more coming (SDA, MDA, 6111, t709, T609, A910, and 4 nokias, 1SE, 5 motos)
3G after spectrum auction

finally

I can't tell you all how hard it has been to replace faulty, damaged, or lost ipaq's for tmo customers since the ipaq and treo600 were discontinued. We've had to go to extremes to get these people phones that were comparable. I will be glad when they finally release these.
