The Wing, which has blue soft-touch casing, looks a lot like its predecessor, except it is thinner, the slider QWERTY thumb-keyboard is spring assisted, and it sports a higher-resolution 2-megapixel camera.
At 4.3 x 2.3 x 0.7 inches, the Wing is 30 percent smaller than the MDA. It weighs 6 ounces.
The new model is a tri-band GSM/GPRS smartphone with support for T-Mobile’s 2.5G EDGE wireless network. The lack of 3G isn’t such a big issue for T-Mobile customers, the country’s second largest GSM carrier after AT&T (formally Cingular), because the operator has yet to launch its own UTMS/HSPDA 3G data network, which its competitor has already done.
Additional known features include a microSD slot, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a QVGA (320 x 240 pixel) resolution and 2.8-inch touch screen.
Under Microsoft’s new taxonomy for Windows Mobile 6, the Wing is not known as a Pocket PC Phone like the MDA, but rather a Windows Mobile 6 Professional device.
Available now, the Wing sells for $300 with a two-year agreement.
