updated 09:40 am EDT, Fri July 6, 2007

T-Mobile MDA Vario III

T-Mobile's German headquarters today announced it would be first to pick up the HTC Kaiser, rebranding it as the MDA Vario III. The smartphone adopts the familiar slide-out keyboard of many high-end devices but adds a unique tilting motion that can lock the keyboard at an angle to the display, making it useful for writing e-mail or editing Office Mobile documents at a desk. Windows Mobile 6 Professional is standard and ensures a full suite of office tools out of the box. Cameras at the back (3 megapixels) and front (unknown) offer capturing and video calls.

Due to arrive in Germany by late August, the Vario III is primarily anticipated for a North American launch through AT&T given its inclusion of quad-band GSM for phone calls and a tri-band, US-friendly HSDPA broadband modem that gives it up to 3.6Mbps downloads from anywhere it can find a 3G connection; the device also includes partial UMTS support for its European base and Wi-Fi for local hotspots. Pricing and launches outside of T-Mobile have not been released.
