The HTC Wing is the spiritual successor to the MDA smartphone. The biggest news about the Wing is that it runs the latest version of Microsoft Windows Mobile 6. WinMo6 provides a better experience than Windows Mobile 5 and includes some nice updates such as native Active Sync/Exchange wireless e-mail support.
The Wing is a combined PDA and phone and is a good choice for the enterprise worker who happens to have a predilection for Windows Mobile. For such a small device, the Wing packs in plenty of features, including a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi for Internet access, a 2-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, and a microSD slot for expanding the storage capacity.
I have to say, it's a good thing that the Wing includes Wi-Fi. T-Mobile must know that its 2.5G Edge data network doesn't compare to some of the other providers' 3G data networks. Having Wi-Fi for speedy Internet browsing on board offsets that a little bit. Of course, it also dovetails with T-Mobile's vast number of Wi-Fi hotspots and accompanying service.
By deeming the device worthy enough to have its own launch party, it's evident T-Mobile hopes the Wing takes flight. Let's see if it soars.
