Cingular 8125

I got the new 8125 from Cingular.... word is out yet, but so far incredible!

The screen is awesome and the keyboard........ best one I have used so far.

WI FI, Blue Tooth, you name it......

Will give a better review after a couple of days.

Re: Cingular 8125

I've had mone for about a week. It is very cool... Personally, I love the ability to sync with Activesync via Bluetooth. It's a little slow at times, especially when changing aspects. But that's to be expected considering it's running Windows Mobile...

I looked at such a beast casually in an airport. Doesn't it have a USB connector? If so you could set it up for emergency PCIII map reloading also

It does, in fact... It's nice to see them going the way of standardized connectors. No more proprietary data cables! You may be on to something with the PC. Even better, it has a serial IR port. Now all I need is an IR port in the tail connected to the serial port on the PC and I could do wireless PC map switches...

Re: Cingular 8125

OK:

Run down of some things:


Battery is good, I have not seen the total stand by time, but I can get through a whole day running it, games, calling, bluetooth, and still have 60%in the battery, no too bad.

Speed is a little slow compared to my Dell Axim, but what do you expect from a thing that is running many functions. Cell Phone, Text Messages, Internet, WI Fi, and etc....

Went to Best Buy today and got a One Gig mini sd card.... cheap. Not happy it is mini, because I have probably 12 gigs of sd cards. While at Best Buy Proxied in to there Wi Fi with permission and used the internet while there.... very cool! Even got a better price because Circuit City was cheaper and they matched the price, once I showed them on my cell phone.


Took very cool photos and video of the little guy today. Was fun to see that the clarity is nice and comes with a cheap flash, but it does work. It also constantly lights for when using the camcorder in the dark.


WARNING: Be very careful when you are using the internet. If you want to use the Internet outside of WI FI, get the unlimited DATA PLAN. I have the basic plan and a few days in to ownership and am 1/2 through the allowed KBs. Once past, very expensive.... so be careful.

Typical.... unhappy note, like lots of PDAs not very good in sunny conditions, which makes it a pain for cell use. But, when almost all of you calls are voice dialed.... who cares.

I highly recommend it, it will cost you some coin, but no more of me carrying the cell in one pocket the axim in the other, keys, school keys, wallet and etc... Plus I will be able to grade students and take attendance on the fly with this since my schools have WI FI. Sweet Deal

Re: Cingular 8125

Just wait until we can replace our credit cards w/ our cell phones. Soon my wallet will be obsolete!

Who would have thought that the cell phone would be the death of things like manual transmission, and the wallet?

Re: Cingular 8125

So my company thinks I should have an 8125 (nationwide 950min and unlimited data plan) should I get the Treo or anything or are all of you with these still happy?

I wasn't too familiar with the company that made them for Cing, but after reading it seems anyone with this unit is pretty happy. I didn't realize it can do .11g as well, thats a neat trick...but I just dig the keypad and the ability to converge the work stuff onto one device

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.

Re: Cingular 8125

The Windoz based Treo's are pretty solid. Quite a few clients have them as does my boss, with no complaints. But, there's something wrong about running 'doz on a Palm device

Yeah I cannot get that, PalmOS was one of the few reasons I still had thought about one of those....but, that aside - the Treo still looks like a piece of toast to me or something...its look has always been odd to me.
I'm digging the 8125 more and more I look at it, its a cool package - co worker just let me use his 8125 for a few, seems solid.

miniSD though, wtf...so much SD kicking around now arg!

Re: Cingular 8125

Just bought a Motorola Q last monday when it released, but it is only available through Verizon. This phone freakin rocks, after 5 years of various Blackberry devices Windows Mobile 5.0 is a huge step up. Plus being Windows based it is easy to tweak the OS, Verizon EVDO is really fast also, I tethered it to my laptop and I get 500KB Down 150KB up, not bad for a mobile phone.

The 8125 is awesome... if you are a palm person go with the treo... if you are a windows mobile.... go with the 8125... I was at AMA Races at Road America... checking work emails and posting here with no problems.... the mini SD is fine... most come with an adapter and I have 1 gig and it is plenty.

The Q was my first choice if I went Vz...their EVDO stuff sounds killer, but for me, the 5% more coverage I get with Vz, versus their old school sim-less technology meaning im stuck with that 1 phone 24/7....the convenience factor of the phone won.


p.s. Isn't tethering against Vz's TOS
