Following the press announcement earlier this week, T-Mobile formally announced the MDA Vario IV, its version of the upcoming HTC Raphael, with a press release. Specific details in the press release are pretty slim though and only confirm that it will come with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, HSDPA (7.2Mbps) connectivity, video telephony support, a media player, a 3.2MP camera and integrated GPS.
From previous leaks, we expect that it will be powered by a 528MHz Qualcomm processor and Windows Mobile 6.1. It will also come with a 2.8-inch VGA touchscreen display with an accelerometer to rotate the screen orientation automatically, 256MB RAM and 512MB ROM, integrated GPS, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, an FM radio, a front facing VGA camera, a 3.2MP camera, a TV out port, and a microSD expansion slot.
T-Mobile did not release pricing but indicated that it will be available in late summer 2008.
