It comes with CoPilot Live 6 satellite navigation software (as long as you sign up to particular Flext plans), and features turn-by-turn voice instructions, street mapping and powerful route calculation, for use both in-car and on foot.
Users with web’n’walk can get free real-time traffic alerts and avoidance, delivered directly to the CoPilot via the T-Mobile GPRS network.
All the other functions you’d expect from a modern mobile device are there too – tap the screen and you get access to making calls, Internet surfing, checking emails, downloading music and listening to radio. The web browser is based on Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 5.0.
The MDA Compact III has a large touch screen, easily switchable from landscape to portrait mode. It also has an integrated 2 megapixel camera and Bluetooth.
It will be available from T-Mobile stores and online from this Thursday, 16th November and will cost £59.99 when purchased on the Flext 35 tariff plus web’n’walk (£42.50 per month).
