Brighthand has got the info on the MDA Compact Pocket PC Phone from HTC (formerly known as “magician”).
The MDA compact is going to be smaller than most Pocket PC phones on the market: 4.25″ x 2.3″ x 0.7″, and will weigh 5.3oz.
The MDA compact will also be more powerful than some competitors: packing a 416MHz XScale processor, and offering 64mb RAM, 64mb ROM, and has an SDIO expansion slot for more storage space and/or Wi-Fi functionality (bluetooth is already built-in).
The phone portion of the MDA Compact will be Quad-band (850/900/1800/1900 MHz), making it usable in Asia, Europe and the US, and the MDA Compact will run the Phone Edition of Windows Mobile 2003.
The MDA Compact will be available in Europe in November and I hope it will be offered in the US sometime after that (hint hint T-Mobile… please).
