MWg Releases The Zinc II With Full Slide-out QWERTY Keyboard

Today MWg announced the market availability of their full slide-out QWERTY Windows Mobile-based Zinc II. The device was announced back in May 2008 but it's only now that this high-discontinue device will see daylight at a shop window (or at an online store front for that matter).

Despite being relatively unknown on certain markets MWg did manage to produce a handset that's maybe worth your while reading.

MWg Zinc II has quad-band Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) support as well as 3G (with HSDPA) to ensure quick network data transfers. The Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional-powered device also features a 2.8-inch QVideo Graphics Array (VGA) classy screen and runs on a 500 Mega Hertz (MHz) Samsung CPU. The built-in Random-Access Memory (RAM) memory is 64 MB.

MWg Zinc II also boasts Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) and Bluetooth connectivity and a 2 megapixel snapper. There is also an integrated GPS receiver with the SiRFStar III chipset. A microSD card slot is also built-in to allow extension of the internal memory. The nice feature pack and the rather powerful 1530 mAh Li-Po battery haven't been too merciful on the Zinc's waistline - it weighs 185 g.

Currently, the MWg Zinc II can be found online at about the same price as the HTC TyTN II - a bit under 900 US dollars (about 715 euro). Now if you ask us, it sounds a bit overpriced and if we were you (which sounds like an obvious case of schizophrenia), we would definitely wait up for the HTC Touch Pro to come out before we create a buying decision.
