As if your day wasn't already made with news of the Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro, rumors on the Internets point to a late October or early November release for the Cingular 8825, better known around the world as the HTC Hermes. There's no word on price, but we do have some specs for you to pretend to drool over: Windows Mobile 5.0, tri-band UMTS/HSDPA, push e-mai... all of this and more on a 2.8-inch screen and a built-in 2-megapixel camera. Lots of fun to be had here.

Windows Mobile seems to be hitting its stride with recent releases such as the T-Mobile Dash, also from HTC. Looks like Cingular chose the right manufacturer to try to play catch up with.
