What you need to know about the Wing (T-mobile phone) and how it can help your business

Imaging sending entire PowerPoint presentations through the phone, or having your tech support people make website adjustments from the field.The future is coming alive as communications companies strive to mobilizecommunication technology.The Wing phone, featuring Wi-Fi technology and access to high-speed networks is one-step towards a totally mobile workplace.Amid all of the hype surrounding Apple's iPhone, you might have missed the fact that T-Mobile came out with the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6, internet ready, Wi-Fi phone first.

This phone, the Wing, replaces the T-Mobile MDA, which itself had only been on the market for 18 months.This shows how quickly mobile Wi-Fi technology is improving and might be a good reason to wait for the next version or even the next.Improvements from the MDA to the Wing include a 2-megapixel camera, better voice quality, better picture quality, and Windows Mobile 6.

Probably its biggest selling point is that it uses the Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6 operating system.Using the Windows Mobile 6 operating system allows the user to download Microsoft documents, including work and excel documents, directly onto the phone.The phone is HTML compatible so HTML emails can be downloaded as well.This feature is invaluable in sales and marketing situations where up-to-the minute information and communications are appreciated.Actually, just about any business will benefit from having mobile access to the internet and to desktop documents.

Instead of text message typing from a number pad, the Wing will feature a pullout keyboard with QWERTY keys.This will increase typing speed and the details contained in messages.Even with the keyboard and all the built in features, the phone will still be incredibly small.It measures in at 4.3 inches tall and 2.3 inches wide.Amazingly, it is only .7 inches thick and the total weight is only 6 ounces.That is small enough to be considered pocket sized by most pockets.

Even though it is small, it is smartly made and seems to be `big enough".The 2.8-inch display screen is about the size of the display screen on most digital video recorders.The resolution of the screen is 240X320 pixels, similar to the resolution of standard web sites.So expect a clear picture and readable text on that little screen.

The price of the T Wing is about $300 for a two-year contract.It costs about $150 for the phone and no contract, which can be purchased through Amazon.This might seem a little pricey for most budgets.It is definitely not a phone that you want to equip all of you employees with right away.Key players who travel frequently and need to stay well connected all the time will benefit most from the Wing.

The Wing has broad communications abilities and is a decent computer.It has 64 MB of RAM and 128 MB of ROM.The communications systems include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, EDGE, GPRS, and GSM and there is a microSD storage card available.The phone supports Microsoft's push email, a version of Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Office Mobile.Even at the state-of-the-art price of $150, this is quite a bit of technology in one pocket sized phone.

If you do purchase the Wing for your company, know that it will run slowly and the available program memory is low.There are a number of programs pre-loaded on the wing.If you uninstall some of the programs that you don't need (for example, you might not think MyFaves is important) you will be able to increase the performance of the phone.
