FCC documents reveal the T-Mobile MDA successor

I have been a T-Mobile USA customer for several years now and one of my favorite Pocket PC Phone Edition devices was the current T-Mobile MDA/HTC Wizard. I did eventually give up on the device though since the processor was just a bit too slow for handling the heavy tasks I threw at it. I just read on the Phone Scoop site that FCC documents revealed the next upgrade to the T-Mobile MDA. The HTC Herald/P4350 offers several improvements, including a nicer form factor with the casing similar to the T-Mobile Dash, 2 megapixel camera, Windows Mobile 6 operating system, BT, WiFi, and quad-band GSM/EDGE (no 3G since T-Mobile USA hasn't rolled it out yet). Specs for other HTC Herald models include an OMAP 850 201MHz processor, which is the same as in the Wizard/MDA and I hope Windows Mobile 6 helps out with the processor capability and functionality. There is no word on pricing or availability yet, but the current MDA is definitely getting long in the touch and is ready for an upgrade.

U.K. lawmakers push for rural broadband

Lawmakers in the United Kingdom have called on the government to do more to address the lack of broadband in rural areas. There is growing concern that many parts of the United Kingdom will suffer significant and long-term economic damage because businesses and homes cannot get access to reasonably priced high-speed Internet access. More than 30 percent of the U.K. population cannot get affordable broadband, according to recent figures. Telecommunications service provider British Telecommunications has broadband-enabled some 1,010 of its 5,000 local exchanges, extending coverage to around 60 percent of the U.K. population, and is planning to upgrade another 100 by the end of May. The company has said it is not economically viable for it to install its technology in more rural areas yet, as it believes there is not sufficient demand to justify the cost. BT is working with some rural development agencies to see if they would subsidize further broadband development. Graeme Wearden reported from London. To read the full story, visit ZDNet U.K.
