Cingular 8525 Confirmed

Cingular's use of the HTC TyTN (pronounced "titan") has been confirmed, say contributors to Howard Forums. As part of an update to its website, Cingular has inadvertently posted official images of what will be known as the Cingular 8525 and has also confirmed its specifications. Unlike many imported European phones, the 8525 will retain the ability to connect to UMTS mobile Internet networks as well as Cingular's own version of HSDPA. Bluetooth and WiFi are standard, but the cellphone carrier's data sheet notes that the 2-megapixel camera may only be optional -- a significant change in approach compared to most other providers, which rarely offer more than a single version of a device. Neither pricing nor a launch date were leaked in the website revision, but Cingular's posting of this content indicates a likely introduction within the next few weeks.
