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

So, last time we checked, the Palm Treo 750 was a GSM / GPRS / EDGE / UMTS / HSDPA handset destined for the likes of Vodafone and Cingular. So why is it, then, that a couple images have leaked out of a draft CompUSA ad offering a Sprint 750w with \"EDGE/EVDO technology\" for a cool $300? Hey, if Spri

Whether Kinpo planned this name change all along or it was a last-minute decision after realizing that tin is a nearly worthless, weak, and altogether uninspiring metal, we don't know, but either way, the Tin has become the iDo S630. Our American readers might want to stop reading this right about

If you've been thinking that Windows Mobile 5 could use a little spit 'n polish (and not much else), new screen shots coming in from GpsPasSion seem to confirm our hunch that that's pretty much how Crossbow rolls. The successor to Windows Mobile 5 -- whose real name and version number is not yet kn

Following its CDMA and iDEN competitors headlong into the hot location-based services game, Cingular is finally poised mark their first wide-scale LBS deployment by hooking up with TeleNav to offer turn-by-turn navigation to its customers. Though the service will be marketed mainly toward the carrie

In a world of 6.9mm-thick phones, we use the term \"thin\" somewhat loosely, but what the heck -- it is a full fledged Pocket PC phone, after all. E-TEN's latest, the X500, manages to pack Bluetooth 2.0, microSD expansion, 802.11g, FM radio, GPS, and a 2-megapixel autofocus shooter into a sub-15mm fr

We're still smarting from the thought that O2's sexy little Pocket PC slider has virtually no shot of ever gracing US shores, but that doesn't stop us from torturing ourselves with an endless onslaught of fabulous visual stimuli. PhoneDaily's quick take on the Gigabyte-manufactured Xda Stealth is a

Just when we thought HTC couldn't physically stuff any more receivers into their Trinity, here we find out that the HSDPA Pocket PC has GPS guts crammed in there, too. The catch? They're turned off for the time being. From what we can gather from Google's oft-comical translation services, HTC discov

San Diego-based izenMobile (no, we haven't heard of them either) looks to take a page from the ASUS P525's book, combining a numeric keypad with Windows Mobile's Pocket PC Phone Edition platform to create the \"Krma,\" a distinctly Motorola-esque name, if we do say so ourselves. We don't have much t

Cingular may still be playing dumb about its next-gen Treo launch plans -- but Vodafone and their partner network in Singapore, M1, are happy to share theirs. It turns out that M1 will be launching the Windows Mobile-powered 750v in October of this year, 3G data and all, which could ultimately make

While we'd secretly hoped we'd see the T-Mobile Dash before September was out, we've gotten hold of some internal T-Mobile documentation that tells us October 16 is the date. We've always been told not to look a gift horse in the mouth (whatever that means) so we're going to keep our mouths shut an

What with their crosstown rival getting all serious about their own Windows Mobile efforts, it sounds like LG has decided it's high time to throw their own name in the hat. In a recent interview with NewMobile, LG's Dirk Jan van Heteren let it slip that the Korean powerhouse has a Windows Mobile Sma

If you're willing to trade the P525's honest-to-goodness numeric keypad for an embedded SiRF Star III GPS antenna, ASUS is about to drop your hookup with the upcoming P535. The Pocket PC Phone Edition device is rumored to come packing some serious heat with an XScale humming along at a generous 520

We're, like, so over flush metal keypads, but we're going to let it slide just this once. Looking to bring a little more spit and polish than the original dual-mode hipi before it, Paragon Wireless' new hipi-2200 ups the ante with the inclusion of Windows Mobile 5 -- in a far more refined-looking p

Dear Palm,Why is it that you have such a devil of a time keeping a lid on your product pipeline? It seems like in those precious few moments when your carriers aren't leaking documents describing unreleased Treos, you're doing it yourself. No bother; we already knew darned well Cingular would be ge

Cingular customers, we're afraid you're going to have to wait just a little bit longer to automatically ignore your calls. Though they say they'll still be getting a PTT-enabled version of the Pearl, it won't be coming until early 2007 now instead of the late 2006 we'd hoped for. By the time it come

We're not really feeling the carrier-specific exterior (apparently known by HTC as the \"Cruiser\") as much as the sculpted lines of its generic sibling, but at least O2 Germany customers can take solace in the knowledge that they'll be getting some form of the nav-enabled device. The \"Xda Orbit\" bri

Don't shoot us -- we're just the messengers on this one, but an outfit going by the name \"Zenum\" is claiming that they'll be releasing their rather comely \"Opus Operis\" Pocket PC Phone Edition device come this November. If real (and we really have no basis to form an opinion one way or another on t

French site Ultimate Pocket had a crack at the HTC Artemis this week, coming away with a solidly positive impression of the GPS-enabled unit. They were really digging the trackball (as were we), the comprehensive software package, and the FM radio support which allows direct-to-MP3 recording. The r
