Hard-disk in mobile?Anything is possible with T-mobile.Here comes a phone with a hard drive. T-Mobile (a unit of Deutsche Telecom and one of the operators in Germany) has unveiled a phone with a hard disk disk (HDD), saying the pocket-sized device with a 13-centimetre screen would go on sale in Germany just before Cebit show in March.
Called Ameo, the phone contract manufactured by HTC uses Microsoft’s operating system Windows Mobile 5.0. It would cost about 500 euros ($650) bundled with two years of phone service.
It has a 8 GB HDDD and looks more like a mini laptop. Its best feature is its detachable 13-centimetre wide keyboard and upright display. However, T-Mobile has no immediate plans to sell it in the US or rest of Europe.
This new mobile with hard-disk will force the laptops to take a backseat.
