T-Mobile Wing Official

T-Mobile this morning officially launched the Wing, its custom version of the HTC Herald for the US. The smartphone is the first new device in the US to ship with Windows Mobile 6 and combines a 2.8-inch touchscreen with a slide-out keyboard to provide full control for browsing, Office Mobile, or other heavy-duty apps. The body itself is also upgraded from the HTC reference design with a soft-touch blue shell and a slip-resistant keypad, T-Mobile says. The phone can also connect virtually anywhere with Wi-Fi filling in for Internet access when EDGE coverage runs out; the GSM radio is quad-band for call roaming in Europe and other areas. A 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and a microSD slot handle media capture and playback duties.

In T-Mobile's version of the device, the Wing comes with myFaves support for unlimited calling to five friends, and also ships with IM support for the four major messaging networks. Wings should be available online and in stores later today. Pricing wasn't included with the announcement but should reach $300 with a two-year contract. [photo via BGR]
