Cingular Wireless has introduced the Cingular 8525 Pocket PC, the first UMTS, HSDPA-enabled PDA in North America. The Cingular 8525 will use Cingular's speedy 3g HSDPA network, allowing users to talk on the phone while at the same time downloading and reviewing documents, surfing the web or using applications. Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 with Direct Push Technology, and integrated Wi-Fi ( 802.11 b and g), Bluetooth 2.0, and infrared make this device a powerful tool for business or personal use.
