T-Mobile gives you wings

Bellevue-based T-Mobile USA said today that it will start selling the T-Mobile Wing, the first phone to launch in the U.S. with the Windows Mobile 6 operating system. The phone was also developed by HTC, a Taiwanese manufacturer that has its North American offices in Bellevue.

The T-Mobile Wing has a blue soft-touch exterior, touch screen, and full, slide-out keyboard.

The phone has a couple of enhancements from a similar device that T-Mobile has sold before — a new keyboard design, longer battery life, a 2 megapixel camera, a speakerphone and Bluetooth.

“The T-Mobile Wing is 30 percent smaller than its predecessor, the T-Mobile MDA, and is packed with broad functionality that enables users to experience the best in connectivity, productivity and mobility,” said Todd Achilles, vice president of HTC America.

The T-Mobile Wing is $299 with a two-year contract and is available exclusively to T-Mobile customers beginning today.
