Cingular 2125 officially announced

Cingular 2125 officially announced

Although it's been on Cingular's site for several weeks now, the carrier officially announced the Cingular 2125 (a.k.a. the HTC Faraday) today. The 2125 is Cingular's first company-branded B2B device, and it offers connectivity, productivity, and mobility in one sleek package. Like the Audiovox SMT5600, the Cingular 2125 sports a candy bar shape and is ultraportable at just 4.5 by 1.8 by 0.7 inches and 3.7 ounces. The smart phone runs Windows Mobile 5; in addition to the new Microsoft Office Mobile suite, it can sync with Microsoft Exchange Server so that you receive corporate e-mail right on your device. It supports GoodLink, Cingular Xpress Mail, and Hotmail. Without a QWERTY keyboard, though, its effectiveness as an e-mailing machine leaves us wondering. Globe-trotting execs will be pleased to know that the 2125 is a quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) phone, so you can take it with you overseas; plus, there's EDGE support. Other goodies include Bluetooth, a 1.3-megapixel camera, 64MB of SDRAM, 64MB of flash ROM, and Windows Media Player 10 Mobile. The Cingular 2125 is available now for $299.99, but you should be able to get it cheaper with service. We're expecting to get one in soon, so check back for a full review.
