The MDA Compact and SDA now appear to be available in the UK!

The MDA Compact is T-Mobile's 'version' of the iMate Jam, and the SDA is rather like an SPV C500 with additional T-Mobile buttons.

I have ordered an MDA Compact from Scancom.co.uk and it should be waiting for me at home (I hope :D).

I've heard of people picking them up at other places too this week... so T-Mobile subscribers, welcome to the Smartphone club :D

Hmmm... just been doing some searching online and I can't find the SDA being sold anywhere... also T-Mobile's website yesterday still featured it on the 'coming soon' page. Now their website isn't work...

I hope you're right because it's been a LONG wait and I used to want the SDA bad. Now I've got the MDA III I'm not so sure... :?:

EDIT: Would probably help if I read the post wouldn't it! Wonder why Sancom get this before everyone else :?:

UPDATE: T-Mobile have taken the MDA Compact and the SDA off their coming soon screen! Looks like Smartphone is finally supported by a service provider other then Orange!

In the meantime I've decided even if I can get the SDA free of charge I can't afford the £250 the contract would saddle me with (only just signed up for Relax 200 for the MDA III which at £25 I'm more then happy with...)

Pondrew,

Are you saying it's now on the site to buy, or now NOT on the site at all, whilst it gets moved from coming soon, into the proper to buy section.

As I can't find it.

Share a link?

Sorry mate, in truth I'm taking their having moved it out of the coming soon section to mean it's launch is in progress. It's still NOT listed as available.

Only place I can find claiming to have the SDA in stock is Scancom.co.uk

You're getting it for £9 for three months, then £18 for the rest of the contract.

That MDA Compact (magician) is damn cheap - not much more than the SDA. I'm seriously tempted :D

Will have to check my back balance after the weekend :D

Not so convinced myself Gorskar just in that the HTC Magician does tend to retail (in it's various forms) quite a bit cheaper then the more feature packed HTC Blue Angel. Given you can get the Blue Angel on T-Mobile for £25-50 lots of places the £20 for the MDA Compact doesn't seem so great...

The MDA compacts have apparently started arriving with folks who order it... BUT I'm more curious as to the SDA...
