    The 6600 isn't even out yet and look at the what might be next.....

    Now this looks just too cool. So cool, that it probably won't be avialable in the states for 4 years plus one year for delays.....and this news is 6 months old!!!!

    So hot on the heels of T-Mobile Deutschland’s unveiling of the MDA III Pocket PC Phone a few weeks back comes news that there’s already an MDA IV on the way that is due out early next year. We suspect this one will probably have the same slide-out mini-keyboard and built-in WiFi as the MDA III (pictured at right), but what we do know is that it will get a bump up in processor speed to 624MHz, have a high-res 640x480 pixel VGA display, and operate on both GSM and 3G networks (UMTS to get all specific on your ass). Of course this all fantasy stuff for us since we have yet to even see the MDA II show up here in the States (we’re still on the lowly MDA I,aka the XDA or T-Mobile’s Pocket PC Phone).

    This version is an easy upgrade path. Up the proc, new screen... done. This could easily appear in the not too distant future.

    Would this prevent you from buying a PPC today?

    Hey, Columbus could have come to America by jet if he waited long enough...

    Of course, that article was posted in July 2004. Things have changed considerably since then.

    Changes to the specs of the new phone? Everything went silent since June, have you heard anything?

    No, just rumors... I don't think we will see the XDA/MDA IV until mid-to-late next year at the earliest, and most likely early 2006, unless it comes into the European market first, which it may very well do.
