Briefs: Cingular adds WiFi-capable Windows phone

Cingular 8100

Cingular Wireless is offering a new 8100 series phone that is equipped with Windows Mobile and integrated with WiFi.

The new phone, along with the recently introduced 2125 Smartphone, forms the base of Cingular's move into the Windows Mobile 5.0 arena.

"Cingular now has a Windows Mobile 5.0 device offering that appeals to a broad swath of wireless users," said Cingular's Michael Woodward. "These are just the first two of what will be an array of Windows Mobile 5.0-based devices that will be available from Cingular by the end of this year."

Cingular said the 8100 series Pocket PCs come either without a camera or with a 1.3 megapixel digital and video camera.

The Bluetooth WiFi capability works off Cingular's national EDGE wireless data network.
