Cingular 8525 PDA w/HSDPA

Cingular will soon introduce the 8525 Pocket PC, what the company claims will be the first PDA in North America with HSDPA (and UMTS) broadband. The product is being aimed at business customers, but is also being sold for its entertainment capabilities, such as games, music, a 2MP camera, and video through MobiTV. It will go online through Cingular's BroadbandConnect service, which is currently ready in 134 US markets and has an average download speed of 400-700Kbps. Users who wander outside broadband service areas will be automatically switched to the Cingular EDGE network. The 8525 will go on sale November 16th for $400, and should be available at every Cingular sales outlet.
