Cingular 2125 Multimedia Phone Deal

The Cingular 2125 is a Windows Mobile smartphone that is lightweight and ultra-thin. Would you believe just 4 oz. in a package that measures 4.6" x 1.8" x 0.7"? Its form-follows-function package is a cross between a candy bar style cell phone and a Pocket PC or PDA.

This phone looks like it has a huge color display and it does. The display measures 320 x 240 pixels and shows over 262,000 colors. That size and color resolution is just what you need for reading Microsoft Pocket Outlook email documents including Excel, Word and PowerPoint. Windows Pocket Explorer provides HTML support for mobile Web browsing. MS Windows Media Player 10 plays video and MP3 files for entertainment on the go. A stereo headset is included with the phone.

You'll also like the larger display to view those sharp digital photos you can take with the 1.3 Megapixel camera built-into the Cingular 2125. Resolution is an impressive 1280 x 1040 pixels. You also have the opportunity to use this camera in video capture / camcorder mode to make short video clips.

Sync your data with your desktop or notebook computer with the included MS ActiveSync software and USB cable. The 2125 runs on Cingular's EDGE network for high speed data downloads. MSN Instant Messenger comes built-in, as does support for SMS text messaging and multimedia messaging.

All this processing power on the go is provided by Windows Mobile 5.0 with a 200 MHz Texas Instruments OMAP 850 processor. Built-in memory is 64 MB and you can expand memory capacity with a miniSD card. This is a quad-band GSM phone that also includes Bluetooth communications for hands-free conversations.
