Surprise, surprise: Cingular 8525 becomes AT&T 8525

Chris Ziegler

Following new firmware to rebrand the handset's software, sources are reporting that the 8525 -- AT&T's variant of the venerable HTC Hermes -- has gone under the knife to get external branding to match. Though new branding in itself is barely notable, the move seems to suggest that AT&T intends to keep the 8525 kicking around for the long haul rather than replacing it any time soon with one of its fresher contemporaries like the Kaiser. That's all well and good considering that the Hermes is still a fairly formidable device by Pocket PC Phone Edition standards -- but boy oh boy, the Kaiser's flip-up screen sure is trick, is it not?
