T-Mobile introduces the MDA IV Pocket PC with UMTS (3G)
T-Mobile is introducing its new Windows Mobile device, the MDA IV. This is the first mobile communications device to integrate the mobile communications technologies GPRS, UMTS and Wireless LAN (WLAN). The MDA IV is a triband terminal, operating on GSM 900, 1800, and 1900 megahertz (MHz) networks. SMS, MMS and e-mails can be typed in using the full keyboard and the LCD screen supports VGA resolution. This Pocket PC Phone Edition is based on the HTC Universal platform.

Additional functional highlights include two integrated cameras and loudspeakers. The two built-in cameras let the user take photos and record video sequences, while supporting 3G video telephony.

Once open, the VGA screen can be turned round in a single move, turning it from a clamshell design to a standard PDA form factor with a touchscreen. The MDA IV is scheduled to be available from this summer in Germany and other countries.

"The MDA IV is a milestone in turning ’office in your pocket’ into reality", said Martin Knauer, Managing Director of Marketing at T-Mobile Deutschland. "This device combines innovative mobile communications technology, functionality, and powerful software in a very compact package. Operated on our multimedia networks, the mini-laptop is almost as powerful as a desktop PC. This is a response to the requirements of our customers who want the tools of their trade to be just as reliable on the move as in the office."

The T-Mobile MDA IV is powered by a 520 megahertz Intel processor. Like the other MDA models, the MDA IV includes Pocket Office functionality. The new Pocket PC supports an e-mail push-service for the automatic receipt of e-mails. Word and Excel files the user may have received as e-mail attachments, for example, can be ideally displayed and conveniently edited on the new VGA display; PowerPoint and PDF files can also be displayed. The MDA IV is equipped with USB and Bluetooth interfaces for synchronization of data with a PC.
