Cingular 8525 released, reviewed


So, Cingular's finally announced their 8525 -- what a relief. As we suspected, it'll set you back $399 (with two year contract -- sorry, no price yet listed with 1 year or no contract) when it launches November 16th but LAPTOP has the first official ...

Cingular 8525 Smart Phone


If checking e-mail or surfing the Web is sluggish on your aging cell phone, the Cingular 8525--the first PDA phone that's compatible with Cingular's fledgling high-speed HSDPA network--might be the answer to your prayers. For the most part, the 8525...

Poor talk-time battery life Bulky design

Alas, the battery life in our lab tests was exceptionally poor: It lasted just 4 hours, 21 minutes, which ranks among the worst spans we've recorded. Overall, I'd recommend the 8525 to business users who don't mind carrying a few extra ounces (and an...

Cingular 8525


Slide the screen to the side and rotate the 8525 to use its QWERTY keyboard, which isn't great, but it'll get the job done. The keys are close together, like the 8125's, but they're also oddly smaller than its predecessor. Thankfully, the keypad lights...

HSDPA and Wi-Fi for high-speed Internet. Zippy processor. Stereo Bluetooth

Not the greatest keyboard. Earpiece could be louder. Some hiss on calls

The Cingular 8525 will keep you connected to the Internet at the highest speed possible wherever you go (given the limitations of Cingular's network), and you won't miss a single call while you're online.

Great SmartPhone, especially w/ Windows Mobile 6 Upgrade


Most of the PDA user experience is based on software, instead of hardware, but I'll try to focus on this hardware device instead of the Windows Mobile operating system. The phone feels great in the hand, but it seems a little too thick when you put ...
