If you've been staring longingly at that poor, disabled push-to-talk button on the side of your Cingular-branded Hermes
, wondering just when -- if ever -- you'd be able to annoy friends and family alike with Nextel-like ease, it seems your time has nearly come. Sources tell us that a firmware update will grace the 8525
on or around April 25 (yes, of 2007), bringing an enabled PTT button, AT&T branding to match the BlackJack's
, and a mixed bag of fixes for bugs in the current firmware. The same source is telling us to expect our Windows Mobile 6 upgrade
come Q3 of this year, so if the April 25 date holds up, we'd say that bodes well.
