Motorola MPx220 Windows Mobile Smartphone from TIM in Brazil
TIM (Telecom Italia), Motorola e Microsoft came together to announce the Motorola MPx220, running Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition for Smartphone. The new Smartphone will be available to TIM users in around 1.700 Brazilian cities where the GSM/GPRS is available. With this announcement, TIM claims to be the first mobile operator to make the new mobile phone available to the public.

The MPx220 is expected to available from September 2004, through TIM retail stores and corporate business customers. Expected price is R$2600 (US$890).

The MPx220 is a quad-band GSM mobile phone, with built-in 1.2 megapixel digital camera with flash, capable of video recording (3gpp). It is based on a TI OMAP 200 MHz processor, with 64MB ROM and 32MB RAM. It supports mini SD for memory expansion.

It also comes with a Java run-time environment for games, and .Net Compact Framework support. Bluetooth is available on this new model. The companies believe the corporate market will also benefit with its integration with Microsoft Exchange 2003, SSL and VPN support. The Li-ion 800mAh battery should support up to 7 hours talk time, and 8 days stand-by.

Microsoft believes the launch of Motorola's MPx220 in Latin America will help creating new business for local developers. TIM is already working to make a Developer Kit, consisting of a MPx220 plus SDK, support and data services available for developers. For this product launch, around 20 companies are working to have some new services available. For example TIM News will aggregate news content from Folha de Sao Paulo, Abril and O Globo, plus entertainment guide, all accessible over GPRS. Visa is also working to create payment services that would allow users to buy products and services and pay via mobile phone.
