AT&T 8525 Finally Gets Windows Mobile 6 Upgrade

The official AT&T 8525 upgrade to Windows Mobile 6 is finally here after months and months of delay. You can download and install it directly from the HTC website (as opposed to the AT&T website), but you only have from November 1 to February 1, 2008 to do so. You'll probably still be able to find the ROM online after… » 10/31/07 3:11pm 10/31/07 3:11pm

Sizemodo: Helio Ocean vs. Everything (including iPhone)

We know you're itching for more Helio Ocean coverage, so here it is: a live Sizemodo of the Helio Ocean vs. every phone we have.

AT&T and HTC Update the 8525 (Sorry, Not WM6)

We were pretty bummed to see that AT&T and HTC America released an update for the Cingular 8525 that wasn't a Windows Mobile 6 ROM. But if you've been waiting for bug fixes (like Daylight Saving Time) along with Cingular Video, AT&T Music, Push-to-Talk and BlackBerry Connect support, this is the update for you. » 5/02/07 5:00pm 5/02/07 5:00pm

Unofficial Windows Mobile 6 for HTC Hermes (Cingular 8525)

The guys on the XDA Dev Forums have hacked together a bunch of Windows Mobile 6 code together to make a version that works on your phone.

HTC Stereo Converter

If you've picked up an HTC Trinity, Artemis, or TyTN/Cingular 8525, you probably noticed that the only headset port is the 11-pin mini USB kind.

Brando's got the HTC stereo converter shipping December 27, which allows you to… » 12/20/06 6:25pm 12/20/06 6:25pm

Cingular 8525 Upgrade Guide: Should You Switch to the Best Windows…

For our money, the Cingular 8525 Windows Mobile Pocket PC phone is the best Windows Mobile phone out right now. It's pretty much universally agreed—by the Frankenreviewer—to be an all around monster of a communications device. If you're using a basic cellphone like the RAZR, we can definitely say it's worthwhile to… » 12/07/06 12:30pm 12/07/06 12:30pm

Frankenreview: Cingular 8525

The Cingular 8525 (HTC Hermes) smartphone is unimpressive at first glance, looking remarkably similar to its predecessor, the Cingular 8125. In a day when even Blackberries are getting cosmetic surgery and going organic, the 8525 keeps pounding Krispy Kremes and Whopper Jrs. Despite the persistent odor of onion rings… » 11/08/06 1:00pm 11/08/06 1:00pm

Cingular 8525 Pictures Surfaced to Mixed Reactions

Over the weekend some pictures of Cingular's HTC Hermes knockoff hit the web over at the Brighthand.com forums. This is supposedly an upgrade from the 8125, but unfortunately it has had the front-facing camera removed, therefore making video conferencing null and void.
