This prototype, presented by Windows Phone Hacker, features some fun changes that make it feel more like your beloved handheld ga...

Sources tell us that a firmware update...

It doesn't get much better than when the Lego bricks of our youth meet our gadget stash of today, and while we've seen Lego docks for various devices before, Chris C built himself an all-in-one unit to house his 8525, iPod and DS Lite in plastic digs. We've gotta hand it to Chris for mixing an ind...

File this under serious DIY friends, a user over at HowardForums was kind enough to take his buddies' Cingular 8525 apart and peeped that in the corner of the device is a tray and a adapter to attach a camera to (check the picture above). Amidst a small frenzy of controversy, complaints, and gener...

While we don't expect the Hong Kong-derived HTC TyTN Music Dock to produce the same level of audio fidelity as Orange's Bluetooth variety, we'll admit that getting a dock, charger, and paperweight for 28 bucks isn't such a bad deal. The device sports a charging / syncing cradle for your HTC TyTN (He...

So, Cingular's finally announced their 8525 -- what a relief. As we suspected, it'll set you back $399 (with two year contract -- sorry, no price yet listed with 1 year or no contract) when it launches November 16th but LAPTOP has the first official review of the unit, which resulted in a 4/5 star ...

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 poin...

We noticed a little gem in Cingular's press release triumphantly announcing completion of their GSM network integration: "Unlike some competitive services, all 3G services and features, such as Cingular Video, are also available on the company's EDGE network." Really now, is that so? This after cust...
