Fleabag, I believe the MDA Compact II is coming. I called T-Mobile today and was told a few things about it. Highlights included the suggestion it'll come in three colour options, Blue, Silver, and magenta.

Major downer though, the documentation the lass I was speaking to was quoting was unspecific of which version of Windows Mobile it was running, contrary to the Vario info which clearly stated Windows Mobile 5.0.

If anything, those links make me LESS linclined to believe it's going to have Windows Mobile 5. WM5 WITHOUT softkeys?! Not possible. The softkeys are part of the OS, they're not a skin. That screenshot on msmobiles is Windows Mobile 2003SE! So if anything, this just leads me to believe the MDA Compact II is just a Qtek S110 (128meg ram version) but with a new paintjob.

PLEASE prove me wrong as the world NEEDS a WM5 Magician ;)

Better not be pink only, the only 'magician' with WM5 and no bloke'll buy it! I say 'Magician' but god knows what its based on.

Looking at my MDA Compact II now, receiving it's first charge :)

Confirmation, at least according to the documentation and box, QUAD band, Windows Mobile 5.0, 128meg rom AND the Texas Instruments OMAP 850 processor at 195mhz (presumably the same as the HTC Wizard). Not sure this change of processor would be considered an upgrade :|

Look for a review soon...

I suppose there's one piece of good news, and that is that there IS now a Windows Mobile 5 HTC Magician(esque?) Pocket PC Phone (albeit with VERY different spec)

Oh, and I obviously chose the Graphite colour... :D

EDIT: Topic moved to HTC Magician section and news post made linking to it.
EDIT2: I'm almost certain this isn't an HTC Magician at all. Info seems to point to this being a new device called the HTC Charmer.
