T-Mobile launches UMPC-like Ameo from £120

Mobile phones, PDAs

First mentioned in January and officially launched at the 3GSM 2007 was HTC’s Advantage (X7500). It’s now on sale in the UK as the T-Mobile Ameo.

The UMPC-like device has 3G UMTS/HSDPA connectivity, a QWERTY keyboard, 5-inch, 640 x 480, 65,536-colour screen, 8GB hard drive, 128MB of memory, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity and an SDHC-compatible memory card slot. The operating system is Windows Mobile 5. Talk time is around 6.5 hours, with 300 hours of standby.

Depending on your contract, you can pick one up fairly reasonably – prices start at £120, rising to £430. If you don’t want to be tied, HTC is expected to launch the device under the Advantage (X7500) label, but at a higher price point.
