T-mobile MDA Compact III review

Our friend Gears over at CoolSmartPhone has just published an excellent and thorough review of the T-Mobile MDA Compact III (aka HTC Artemis).

MDA Compact III

“Having GPS inside your phone is pretty damned cool. For a start you don’t have any oiks breaking into your car because you left your precious SatNav stuck to the windscreen. The phone is always with you and – even if your mates don’t answer a call to tell you how to get to the pub – CoPilot will. In short I love having GPS in-built. For me I don’t really use GPS daily, so I don’t see any reason in going and spending several hundred pounds on a sat-nav.”
