It's good news day for Sprint users! Not only do you get the BlackBerry 8830, your corporate overlords have just released a data sheet detailing what you'll get with the upcoming PPC-6800, or HTC Titan, as it's better known as.

The phone itself will have WM5 (darn, no WM6), a Qualcomm MSM7500 400MHz processor, 256MB ROM, 64MB RAM, 2.8-inch touchscreen, EV-DO Revision A, Wi-Fi, 2-megapixel camera with auto-focus, Bluetooth 2.0, microSD and an internal antenna. Those of you who long for the days of a gigantic antenna poking you in the thigh will have the option of attaching an external antenna as well.

The date for launch? Looks like late next month.

"Was about to switch from Sprint to Cingular so I could get the 8525." If you switch from Sprint to Cingular, you would be best buying one of the far more advanced units from overseas and not using a stock cingular phone. Go to http://www.pdadb.net/index.php?m=pd… and look at all the better stuff than we get from the US providers all at least 1 year ahead of the latest releases. On Cingular you can pretty much run any GSM phone you want - I would do the same if it weren't for the fact that Sprint is CDMA and even if I could get a better CDMA phone, Sprint locks their network so you are stuck with what Sprint has to offer. My contract runs out in less than 2 months - trying to find a good deal on a ATT contract.
