I'm a bit of newbie, so please excuse the unsophisticated question: Does the fact that the 8525 uses WM5 automatically mean that it can be used with stylus/touchscreen? Thanks.

hsdpa & wi-fi

i currently own an 8125 and i live a market that doesn't offer hsdpa quite yet. if i upgraded to this device, would i at least be able to enjoy an increase in surfing speeds via wi-fi (since i can't use the hsdpa?)

hw6945 vs HTC 8525 or Treo 750

I just coughed up $750+ on an unlocked HP 6945 plus accidental damage extended 3yr warranty. She is currently w/ Cingular and has a Treo 650 which now is on its last leg. Unfortunately for her or me Cingular does not insure a phone which will set you back $400+ which is silly to me. My dilemma here was that I wanted to get her a 3G phone since they have a few towers in Philly. The 750 doesn’t have WiFi unless you spend $130 for a WiFi card. I put Skype on her phone so she could make affordable international calls. However, the 750 can’t make the calls b/c the processor is lower than 400 MHz. Plus, no warranty and she never wants to go back b/c to Palm. The phone was basically a year and a day old before she started having major problems! The...

It's official: Release date is November 16th

Good news for all of us geeks who have been waiting and watching for the ever changing release date of the Cingular 8525. Cingular has posted a press release (http://cingular.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=pr ess_releases&item=1746)
that explains in full detail the new 8525 and is release date which will be on November 16th, 2006. Bad news is that the only price given is $399.99 and alludes to the possibility that that might be the 2 year contract price. If so, that would put it out of my price range for a while and I suspect others as well. I purchased my trusty 8125 for $100 so it might be a while for me to abandon it just yet.
One other good bit of trivia is that Cingular has a deal with TelVav for GPS capabilities for the 8525 but details ar...

Support, Warranty, And software/firmware upgrades

I just wanted to let everyone know that I just purchased the HTC TyTN. This is a great phone and has a lot of features (including a hefty price tag). Be careful when your buying this phone as an unlocked and unbranded phone. If you live in the US, I would recommend buying the Imate Jasjam version instead of the HTC TyTN. Why is this a mistake, well for a couple of reasons:

1) No Support or warranty: HTC TyTN comes with no support and software/firmware updates, if you goto to HTC home page they state that only the service providers service this phone including the supposed 2 year warranty this phone comes with. This is not the case since the phone is unbranded and cannot be serviced by any service provider.

2) The buttons at the to...

Type of Cingular Phone plan you use for this phone.

I don't plan on tethering with it. So what type of plan do I need to use all the compabilities of this phone? Do I need data connect or anything or will media max work. Or better yet do I need both to cover internet usage and multimedia like texting and what not. Basically I want a plan to be able to use all the features on this phone unlimitling except for tethering to a laptop, so can somebody tell me the exact options I'll need?

Will definitely get rid of my 8125 for this!

Love the new 400 Mhz processor compared to the 8125's 200 Mhz. My only complaint is the lack of a real number keypad to dial. Yes, the voice speed dial works but not perfect. Supposedly, HTC will come out with a slimmer unit with a real number keypad and a 3 row qwerty keyboard instead of 4 rows. I would still get rid of my 8125 and definitely get the 8525 for UMTS purposes. Stereo blue tooth is a nice addition also.

I found this for the Japanese market, can't read it but it seem they have a digital compass. Great if you are mountain biking, like what the phone can do. Be Tough. Does anyone know if it's only for this newer version or was it ever on the previous version like the one coming to the US market?
