First Look at the T-Mobile MDA Compact V

tmobile-mda-compact-vIn a recent press conference, T-Mobile announced their intentions to release the new T-Mobile MDA Compact V Smartphone. This is an up-to-the-minute touch screen tablet mobile that is a repackaged version of the HTC Touch Diamond2. The Compact V however, has been given the T-Mobile touch and has been made more accommodating for their specifications. One of the selling points of the Compact V is the presence of mobile widgets that allow users to add customized shortcuts on the main screen’s “sushi bar.” With this in place users can access their favourite websites such as MySpace, Twitter, and Facebook with a press of a button. The addition of CoPilot’s awesome Sat Nav application is also a plus for this budding Smartphone.
Good for Business on the Go
The Compact V shares a lot of similarities with its predecessor, the T-Mobile MDA Compact IV. One of their common features is the presence of a Microsoft operating system. Currently installed in all Compact V handsets is the latest Windows Mobile 6.1 OS. However, T-Mobile promises that users should be able to update their operating systems for free once the newer version, Win Mo 6.5, comes out in September.
Together with an excellent operating system under its hood, the Compact V also has more added features that make it an excellent business phone. Among other things, this includes email support, Wi-Fi capabilities, an excellent 3.2-inch screen, and support for Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook).
Fun on the Run
T-Mobile seems to take the cliché “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” by heart. They made sure that Jack is also able to have fun with the Compact V. Aside from an incredible 5-Megapixel camera, this device will also sport a version of Windows Media Player (mobile edition) to let you listen to your favourite songs and watch your beloved videos. 

The Compact V has been available with T-Mobile since the 21st of May and sources say that you should get this handset for free provided that you’re on one of their higher tariffs.
