It's still forwarding us back to the old-skool 8125's
product page at the moment, but a tipster has managed to coax Cingular's site into giving up the goods on the 8525
-- Buy Now link and all. We're guessing it has something to do with region or Premier account status, we're not sure, but the point is that a select few
are able to place their orders for Cingular's first HSDPA smartphone as we speak. Breaking out the wallet might be hard to justify for folks in 2G areas coming from an 8125, but if speed and power are top priorities, lick your chops as you read the full specs (highlights include a 400MHz Samsung core, 2-megapixel cam, and that fabulous 3G radio) after the break.
Judging from commenters' experiences, it's sounding like there's some buffoonery going on behind the scenes over at Cingular HQ -- the phone may not be shipping to anyone yet after all. In the meanwhile, enjoy the literature and imagery we've scooped, and we'll let you know what's going on as soon as we do.
