[New MDA IV mini-PC is the first to integrate GPRS, UMTS and WLAN, offers Bluetooth and runs Windows Pocket PC. It will be able to connect to the expected 20,000 global hotpsots T-Mobile will have running by the end of the year.]
T-Mobile introduced the next generation from the MDA family of personal digital assistant phones: The MDA IV. The initial launch is expected to take place in Germany the second half of 2005. The MDA IV is one of the key products in the "Office in your Pocket" portfolio introduced at the recent IPK held in Bonn at DT headquarters.
The MDA IV has a VGA touch screen and a QWERTY keyboard and operates more like a Tablet PC with the flip top able to rotate and lay flat making it useable like a conventional PDA.
Other key products in the "Office in your Pocket" portfolio are the SDA, T-Mobile's E-Mail Push-Service and the Communication Center. The E-Mail Push-Service ensures that e-mails are forwarded automatically and promptly to mobile devices such as the BlackBerry handheld, MDA III or, in the future, MDA IV. This means that users can react quickly to important e-mails and answer them while they wait. The T-Mobile Communication Center truly shifts laptop communications into top gear: the solution comprises a PC plug-in card with GPRS/UMTS/WLAN and further optimized communication software, giving users mobile broadband access to Internet and intranet. Integrated standard tariffs that apply to data exchange in all the T-Mobile networks, round off the portfolio of products and services.
According to T-Mobile CEO Rene Obermann, "The 'Office in your Pocket' is T-Mobile's response to the information and communications needs of growing customer groups who want to work in the same way on the road and in the office."
