Today T-Mobile is announcing the Wing, the first new Windows mobile 6 phone available in the US. Of course, the upgrade for the Dash is available now, but this is a brand new phone. And a really good one. Engadget somehow got the news before T-Mobile announced it.I played with the Wing for a bit, these are my first observations:
T-Mobile Wing Specs:
SPECIAL PRICE FOR YOU - here is the good new: the WIng is going to be really affordable. The better news is that we negotiated a special price for all Microsoft partners, developers and IT Professionals (which pretty much means anyone who reads this blog). Many people took advantage of special pricing for the Dash which still is valid (49.99 after rebates!).
The Wing Special Price is only $99.99 after mail-in rebate
Price is good only for new activations and requires a one year contract and a voice+data plan
Call 1-866-464-8662 and mention promo code "Windows Mobile Offer"
This offer is not available at retail. You could buy online following this link but you may have to pay an activation fee
For existing T-Mobile customers that wish to upgrade to the Wing, T-Mobile tells me pricing will be based on your account tenure, rate plan and contract extension. For all upgrade questions please call 800-937-8997
