updated At CTIA Wireless in Las Vegas, HTC today revealed the Foreseer, a new DVB-H TV phone for the U.S., and outlined other parts of its 2006 lineup for the U.S. The Foreseer phone is a quad-band GSM/EDGE Windows Mobile Smartphone like the T-Mobile SDA, but with a landscape QVGA display, microSD card slot, and 1.3 megapixel camera. The phone is designed specifically to work with the new DVB-H network being launched by Modeo later this year. An HTC executive also sat down with Phone Scoop and outlined plans for additional phones. The company plans to bring its "Star Trek" ultra-thin clamshell Smartphone to the U.S. in mid-2006, and its Hermes PDA phone to the U.S. in Q4. The Hermes is a 3G update to the Wizard device currently sold as the Cingular 8125 and T-Mobile MDA. The U.S. version of the Hermes will sport tri-band WCDMA (850/1900/2100) with HSDPA.

Wizard finally has UMTS!!!

In my opinion, Cingular needs to worry about adding UMTS to more markets, than uploading their HSDPA upgrades. Yeah, it's great that HTC has a UMTS ready 8125, but Cingular (AT&T) need to get their act together and offer UMTS to more markets first. After all, a UMTS phones does you no good if you live in a GPRS only area.
...which was exactly my point in my post below. We (both US-based customers of Cingular in specific and US-based customers of GSM-based providers in general) have what I currently understand is a long way to go before we have actual wide-spread/ubiqui...

When wil Cingular (at&t) & Mobile have it?

IF HTC makes the U.S> version available, how long before it makes it through the carrier pipeline? Any insight from a carrier person?
It's not even an issue of when the carriers will have it, though I would certainly want to be among the first to buy this device. From my understanding (and I certainly could be wrong), having the WCDMA/HSDPA infrastructure to really make this device ...

This is great news. I have only had the SDA for 2 weeks now however everyday I am more impressed with the functionality and quality of this device.

I purchased the Dell X51V last November and I have had great success with the device as a strong contender for traveling w/o my notebook. This SDA almost seals the fate as it really covers a lot of ground for us who are mobile.

HTC is most definitely the company to watch for the near future as they appear to have an inside track on the technology curve right now, I think we will be seeing great things from them.

Looks like a great investment opportunity if it comes up to the market place, I for one will be watching for the opportunity.
