Excerpt: I've had the Cingular/AT&T Wireless 8525 version of the HTC TyTN PDA for 18 months now. It's been a very reliable phone with good call quality, a nice loud speakerphone, decent screen display, and excellent flexibility in using not only Windows Mobile apps but a number of my old Palm OS apps as well...
Pros: Good call quality, Loud speakerphone, Voice dialing, Good display, Mobile applications compatibility/use, Stable (with WM 6), MicroSD card capability (can load applications on the SD card & use)
Cons: Bad location of the PTT button, Stylus required to access most advanced functions
Excerpt: I like change my mobile often. This is the fourth windows mobile that I have. But this is my partner since 1 year and a half ago. And in facts, I'm happy. We could say that has a big size and a its battery is not spectacular.
Excerpt: The darn PTT button pushing on me at radom, and the charges therein, on top of not being able to use my 4GB mini were enough for me. Overall, the phone was great, but I now have an Hp Ipaq phone that perfectly fits my needs.
Excerpt: I had the 8125 for a year and moved up to the 8525 and would reccommend it to others. Just as reliably as the 8125 but with less bugs. Not perfect but better. A lil confusing on the button "switchology" in other words, it has way too many buttons on the sides and you can't disable the PTT button...
Excerpt: I first bought this phone when it was first released and it was somewhat buggy on the phone side. I returned it, then decided to try it again recently, flashed to the new bios, and the phone is far better then when I had it in Dec/Jan. The screen size is outstanding.
Excerpt: I had a Blackjack for about a week, and liked it, but the functionality was a little off and the keys were very small. To be honest, I just really got bored with the device. I just got this 8525, and it is absolutely great!!!
Excerpt: Wow!!! I was relunctant in getting the 8525 because I wasn't sure how I'd like the slide out keyboard. I tried out a Blackjack first for a week, and just wasn't satisfied with lack of touchscreen, and the limited functionality of the Smartphone edition of WM5.0.
Excerpt: i'm loving this phone. It's a bit tough to dial on, (you have to either use the touch screen or hold won a shift key while you punch in the numbers on the slide out keyboard) but other than that I love it. I ended up getting VoiceCommander so I could say what I wanted to dial.
