Well, Cingular must have been a very good little carrier this year because it's getting all sorts of smart phone goodies for the holiday season. The Nokia E62, the HP iPaq hw6925/hw6920, and the Cingular 8525 have already been unwrapped and today, Cingular got another gift in the form of the Samsung BlackJack (a.k.a. Samsung SGH-i607). It's the second 3G-enabled (UMTS/HSDPA) smart phone for the carrier, which you can use to access the Cingular Video and Cingular Music services for streaming video and music downloads.

Check out our review for all the juicy details.
