The new VPA III is planned to be available in Germany from autumn. The device is similar to other Pocket PC Phone Editions like the O2 XDA IIs and the i-mate PDA2k. Thanks to the extensible keyboard, users can write texts, send e-mails and administer appointments and contacts when out and about. A VGA digital camera is also integrated. The Pocket PC can access the Internet or corporate network via GPRS or wireless LAN when close to hotspots.
The Pocket PC weighing approximately 205 grams is at the same time a quadband mobile, and its Lithium-Polymer chargeable battery allows standby times of up to 200 hours or talktimes of up to 300 minutes.
Vodafone New Zealand is currently certifying this device on its network.
