T-Mobile Wing smartphone lifts off.


My smartphone quest continues this week, with T-Mobile's launch of the Wing. Their latest smartphone replaces their MDA model from 2006. As T-Mobile has done in the past, the Wing is a branded version of HTC phone, in this case, the Herald. It's priced now at $299 ($499 minus $200 in discounts and rebates).

The Wing has a nice blue case, which gives it a softer look and feel than the MDA. It is a bit thinner than it's predecessor, but weighs in at a hefty six ounces. Also, it's the first mobile phone to use Windows Mobile 6, the latest version of Microsoft's mobile operating system. The phone slides to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard, and it comes with an ample 2.8 inch screen. That said, because T-Mobile still has not implemented a 3G network, it's limited to EDGE download speeds, which personally is a major drawback. So, while the Wing is very tempting, I am still shopping.

To get a better look at the Wing, go to Phonescoop, which has a nice video demonstration.
