T-Mobile MDA Pro

msmobiles (dead link) reviews T-Mobile MDA Pro (HTC Universal) and concludes that HTC Universal has the advantages of been the only Windows Mobile phone on the market with VGA display (640×480), UMTS/3G/W-CDMA, 3G video calling, very big and very comfortable QWERTY keyboard, free SIM unlock available, very flexible hardware design so that users can use it as PDA phone with touch screen or as mini notebook and availability of Push Email and A2DP (stereo audio over Bluetooth). However the disadvantages are too big for most people to be used as regular mobile phone, lack of support for cellular standards: EDGE, HSDPA, American UMTS, GSM850 (one of 2 American GSM bands) and may be expensive.
