Cingular 8125 Smartphone for businesses


If your company has a deal set up with Cingular, you can finally get your hands on one hot Smartphone from the nation’s largest carrier. The company’s new 8125 is basically a re-badged HTC Wizard complete with a suite of Mobile Microsoft products, including Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Internet Explorer. Running on Windows Mobile 5.0, the slide out QWERTY keyboard makes text messaging and checking your email easy.

The unit is 4.25 x 2.83 x 0.93 inches and weighs in at 5.3 ounces. All your usual connectivity options are here as well. Look for built-in Bluetooth, 802.11 Wi-Fi and a Mini-SD expansion slot. Snap pictures with the integrated 1.3 megapixel camera, and check it all out on the 64K-color 2.8 inch screen either in landscape or portrait mode.

As of right now, this quad-band EDGE-enabled PDA phone is only offered to Cingular’s Business 2 Business partners, so for the average consumer, it is still just a bit out of reach. Word on the street has the corporate price tag for the 8125 set in the $225-$250 range, if you choose to sign a two-year contract.
