There were rumours that the T-Mobile SDA, which is a tweaked version of the Orange SPV C500, was NOT coming to the UK. However, it appears that (as we mentioned in this earlier article), T-Mobile are really behind this handset and have great plans to push it across their other European territories too… including us Brits! Yar! :)
Scarlet Pruitt from the IDG News Service writes…..
“Dubbed a Smart Digital Assistant (SDA), the tri-band phone starts selling in Germany in early October, with plans to roll it out in other European countries where T-Mobile operates such as the UK, the Netherlands, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Austria.”
Yes, early October – not September. However, with any luck you should start seeing this handset, with it’s joystick and “T-Zones” button before Christmas here in the UK. T-Mobile are also throwing down the gaunlet as far as price goes too, saying it’ll be the cheapest around.
