T-Mobile on Wednesday unveiled three new HTC phones at an international press conference: the MDA Compact IV, MDA Vario IV, and the Ameo 16GB. The MDA Compact IV – what appears to be a variant of the HTC Touch Diamond – offers users a 3D interface shown on a high-resolution 640 by 480 screen, and is the second device to use Windows Mobile 6.1. The device is HSDPA-enabled, supporting 7.2 Mbit/s downstream, and 1.4Mbit up, and boasts a 3.2 Megapixel camera with 4GB of internal flash storage.
The Vario is designed as a messenging companion, offering a slide-out side keyboard with a full QWERTY layout. It is optimized for email, SMS, multimedia messages, contacts and the calendar function. Like the Compact, it also features a 3.2 Megapixel camera and HSDPA access, but also adds a built-in GPS receiver.
The Ameo 16GB is a full size message station, complete with a large fold-out QWERTY keyboard, and will also run on Windows Mobile 6.1. T-Mobile will make the Ameo 16GB available in July.
The Vario IV comes with its full sliding Qwerty keypad with redesigned buttons, a VGA touchscreen display capable of operating in both landscape and portrait modes, 7.2Mbit HSDPA, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, a faster 528MHz CPU, doubled up 256MB RAM/512MB ROM, a microSD expansion slot, FM tuner, multimedia playback and a 3.2MP camera with front mounted VGAer for video calls.
Operating system is Windows 6.1 OS. Did we mention that there is an inbuilt GPS receiver.
