According to those drunks ( only joking Paul 😉 ) at MoDaCo.com the T-Mobile SDA is set to appear here in the UK next month.
The T-Mobile handset has the same insides as the Orange SPV C500, but comes with a different outer shell, added T-Mobile buttons and keyboard configuration. The handset, in whatever form (C500, SDA, SDA Music, i-mate SP3i, i-Mate SP3 etc etc) is a winner and networks around the world are now seeing a new and exciting way to sell phones – sell them under your own brand. You will see more and more of this, as “hidden” companies (HTC in this case) make the phones whilst big-name-networks like Orange and T-Mobile put their logos on and sell them as their own product.
