Cingular 8525 Brings HSDPA to North America
Cingular Wireless business customers have now access to the the first UMTS/HSDPA-enabled PDA in North America, the Cingular 8525 Pocket PC.

The Cingular 8525 gives customers access to a variety of corporate data and applications, plus personal e-mail and a wide range of entertainment capabilities. The Pocket PC runs Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 with Direct Push Technology, which provides an always up-to-date e-mail experience.

Cingular's UMTS/HSDPA service is branded BroadbandConnect, and provides average downlink data speeds between 400-700Kbps (kilobits per second) with bursts to more than a Mbps (megabit per second) and uplink speeds to 384Kbps. When traveling outside the BroadbandConnect coverage area, the Cingular 8525 enables service on Cingular's EDGE (Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution) network/

The Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system gives Cingular 8525 users access to mobile versions of many of the Microsoft features such as mobile versions of Windows Media Player, Internet Explorer and Outlook.

In addition to connectivity to Cingular's UMTS/HSDPA- based service, the Cingular 8525 provides users with seamless access to integrated Wi-Fi (802.11 b and g), Bluetooth 2.0, and infrared.

The Cingular 8525's also sports a QWERTY, backlit "slider" keyboard for easier experience when creating or replying to messages.

The new handheld will debut with the company's first generally available, location-based solution called TeleNav GPS Navigator, from TeleNav, Inc. With TeleNav GPS Navigator, Cingular 8525 users can get turn-by-turn voice and on-screen directions directly on their device for use when driving or walking.

Multimedia experience is provided through Windows Media Player 10 Mobile, using wired or Bluetooth- enabled stereo headsets, or through the MobiTV service. The Cingular 8525 also comes equipped with a 2-megapixel digital camera and video recorder. Memory can be expanded with MicroSD cards.
