T-Mobile Wing Unboxed
Americans will receive a special version of the HTC Herald, according to photos of the newly unboxed device. Rebranded as the T-Mobile Wing, the finished device (shown at left) undergoes a radical change to a much more stylized navigation button layout and a textured blue shell instead of a smooth black. Owners will also see Windows Mobile 6 Professional preloaded on the phone, giving them Office Mobile as well as better web browsing. A 2-megapixel camera and EDGE support will be unchanged from the model already released in Europe as the Xda terra.
Pricing has also been revealed. T-Mobile's US subscribers will be able to buy the device for considerably less than their European counterparts, picking it up in the near future for either $299 with a two-year service deal or $499 as a contract-free device at T-Mobile's retail outlets. [via BGR]
