T-Mobile Dashes into mobile email space

T-Mobile USA entered the mobile email fray late Thursday, unveiling its exclusive “Dash” Windows Mobile 5.0 smartphone.

The Dash device – also known as the Excalibur and manufactured by Taiwan’s High Tech Computer – looks very much like it is aimed straight for the BlackBerry/Motorola Q/Nokia E61 market. Whilst in Europe, SMS is the messaging choice of the mobile user, US operators who missed the SMS boat are preparing themselves for a boom in mobile email.

Based on Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 with Direct Push, the handset also has a full QWERTY keyboard, wifi and a 1.3 megapixel camera.

The T-Mobile Dash also makes use of T-Mobile’s new myFaves service which features an addition to the user interface with five slots for the subscribers most popular contacts. When coupled with a myFaves tariff, the subscriber can make unlimited nationwide calls to those five numbers.

Do you agree public funding should be used to support mobile operators to more broadly deploy Open RAN?
