Hey everyone I am in a bit of a pickle.
What phone should i get?

The Cingular 8525 or the HTC Touch

Cingular 8525..............HTC Touch
400mhz CPU..................201mhz CPU
Sliding Keyboard.............On-screen keyboard
Wifi..............................Wifi
BlueTooth.....................BlueTooth
2.0MP camera................2.0 MP Camera
3G...............................EDGE
Micro SD.......................Micro SD
Windows Mobile 5...........Windows Mobile 6
Touch Screen................TouchFlo (Slide screen to navigate)


I can probably get the 8525 for 100-200 dollars cheaper than the HTC touch, also the HTC touch keyboard is idiot, its tiny. This isnt that big of a problem for me, who doesn't text that much. My other concern is the 201mhz processor, my AXIM is a 650mhz processor, running Windows 5... How could 201mhz run Windows 6, which looks like the vista of mobile operating systems.
The last thing i want to do is go out and spend 300-600 dollars on a phone and have it suck.
Your input here is greatly appreciated.

The 8525 got an 8.0 rating on cnet, the HTC touch a 6.3.

have you gone to a store and actually played with the phone. See if they have working models and try them there. Or see if they have a certain day guarantee if you don't like the phone you can return it. I like the looks of the touch but the 8525 is nice as well.

The touch isn't out in the US yet, as far as I know.
I have used the 8525, the biggest issue i have with the 8525 is the windows mobile 5, but i suppose its a good OS on my Axim so...
I guess its just not the best os for flashyness.
Thanks for the input.

I vote for the 8525. The lack of a physical keyboard will not work for me.

Madmatt informed me that i can flash the phone to Windows mobile 6, i think that settles it.
The 8525 seems like an amazing phone. and if i can get windows 6 on it...
then why would i get the HTC for $100-200 more.
Thanks a lot!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
