DEC's M5 makes an honest living with WinMo in China

Chris Ziegler

Our own Engadget Chinese had an opportunity recently to play with the DEC M5 -- a phone that bears a passing resemblance to HTC's Magic, granted, but does enough to differentiate itself in its own right. How? Well, for starters, the area below the screen is a smooth, tactile response-free tundra of nav and call buttons, and if you're looking for a trackball, you're going to be sorely disappointed. It also steps down to WQVGA resolution from the Magic's HVGA, though WQVGA really suits Windows Mobile just fine -- something we can't say for Android. It's got EV-DO, AGPS, a 3 megapixel camera, and WiFi, too, so really, DEC, we're going to let you slide right on by without the KIRF label here -- not to say anyone outside Asia will have an easy go at getting one of these anyhow.
