T-Mobile MDA Basic launched in Germany

MDA Basic is the name of the latest smartphone from T-Mobile’s MDA line-up. The device was just announced in Germany and it’s actually a T-Mo personalized version of HTC Touch Viva, which has been around since last year.

As its name suggests, the MDA Basic is not a high-end handset. However, it comes with Windows Mobile 6.1, a 2.8 inch QVGA touchscreen display, Wi-Fi and a 2MP camera – all of which are quite nice features for a basic device.

German customers will be able to buy the new smartphone starting February 2009, for as low as €4.95 with a 2-yr contract agreement.

 

Apart from being available in Germany, the MDA Basic will most probably be launched by T-Mobile in the UK too, but for the moment there’s no word about when this should happen.

    It would be nice to have this here in the US. Touch is almost a requirement for WinMo, and I really don't want to end up with a non-touch dash – but the price range of the Wing is just too high for what you get.

    Yeah, the Touch Viva / MDA Basic would indeed be nice for T-Mo USA. Unfortunately, they have always been a step behind T-Mo Europe when it comes to handsets and prices.
