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 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

 

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.

Review: Cingular 8525

 

The Cingular 8525, based on the HTC Hermes/TyTN, is the subject of our latest review. This Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC supports 3 HSDPA/UMTS bands and 4 GSM/EDGE bands. It doesn't lack any connectivity, that's for sure.

Great connectivity, scroll wheel, large keyboard

Bulky, heavy, keyboard slips open too easily

AT&T 8525 Review

 

They broke the mold when they created "TopTenREVIEWS Gold Award" winning smart phone the AT&T 8525. No seriously, weighing in at 6.21 ounces this phone is the heaviest phone we reviewed, but what do you expect from a cellular phone that has a huge 2.8...

Formally known as the Cingluar 8525 and HTC TyTN this phone was built for the ultimate work alcoholic. With features typically associated with computers and laptops the AT&T 8525 enables you to go where you need, when you need, without leaving your...

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 ...
