T-Mobile launches MDA Compact III mobile with GPS

Mobile phones, Satellite Navigation systems

tmobilemda.jpgT-Mobile has announced the launch of its MDA Compact III mobile device with a built-in GPS satellite receiver, and they claim it makes dedicated sat-nav systems redundant.

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).

One thought on “T-Mobile launches MDA Compact III mobile with GPS

  • Does anyone know if this phone supports the wireless 802.11G protocol?

    I cannot seem to get any reliable information other than it supports the “web’n’walk” service.
