Cingular Renews Vows to Microsoft

Cingular has renewed its commitment to Microsoft, vowing to launch more Windows Mobile devices throughout 2005. Cingular already offers the Motorola MPx220 Smartphone and Siemens SX66 Pocket PC phone. Demand for the SX66 has exceeded expectations, and the phone has been so popular that it has sold out from Cingular's website. In addition to current models, Cingular should launch the Audiovox SMT 5600, originally sold by AT&T Wireless, during the first quarter according to UT Starcom (Audiovox) spokeswoman Joan Cear. Among announced devices, the Motorola MPx Pocket PC phone is probably on the short list of additional Window Mobile models, however Cingular has not yet committed to offering it on their network. Despite Cingular's announcement and a number of studies indicating increasing interest in smartphones, CDMA carriers are hesitant to offer more smartphone models. Both the Samsung SPH i550 and the UT Starcom SMT-5500 (HTC Vivida Windows Mobile Smartphone) are in danger of being shelved due to lack of interest from carriers according to company representatives.
