HTC TyTN to arrive at Cingular as 8525

Cingular 8525 Smartphone

The arrival of HTC's Dash at T-Mobile was noticed by many, but since then word has been received that another phone from the prolific smartphone builder will arrive at a US carrier soon. The TyTN, a phone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, is now set to ship to with the simple name of the Cingular 8525. This Windows Mobile device is expected to be especially feature-filled and compares well against the MDA and similar offerings from T-Mobile. A 2.1-megapixel camera, 802.11g wireless, as well as the option of multiple mobile Internet standards (EDGE, HSDPA, and UMTS) will all be present.

Appropriately for such a high-end system, online sources have confirmed that the price of the 8525 will mirror its role as a miniature multimedia computer. One of Cingular's future handhelds will cost $475 with a two-year contract before rebates; this may limit its accessibility, but those who absolutely depend on its online abilities may consider it a small sacrifice. Click through for a more detailed profile of the phone in its TyTN (originally codenamed "Hermes") guise.
