T-Mobile DashT-Mobile has started selling the Dash, a slim Windows Mobile smartphone that was announced earlier this month. The Dash is slightly thinner than the Motorola Q which qualifies it as the thinnest Windows Mobile handset in the world. Like many other Windows Mobile phones, the Dash is manufactured by HTC. Interestingly enough, T-Mobile is targeting consumers with this device and not business users.

Features of the T-Mobile dash are impressive:

  • QWERTY keyboard
  • Windows Mobile 5.0
  • microSD card slot
  • QVGA display with 65k colors
  • Compact profile, just 4.4" by 2.5" by .51"
  • Quad-band GSM plus EDGE and WiFi
  • 1.3 megapixel camera

T-Mobile is selling the Dash for $199 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a 2-year service contract. It's available now. Verizon Wireless recently added a $100 rebate to the Motorola Q, bringing its final price down to $99.
