Today we talk about the AT&T 8125 that came out in early 2006. Also known as the HTC Wizard, the smartphone runs on Windows Mobile 5 and it is a quad-band world phone that packs EDGE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It looks just about the same as the Cingular 8125 which means that it has the same 2.8-inch TFT display that has a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels and a color output of 64,000. Images and text look defined and clear, while the colors appear vibrant and bright.
Above this display you will notice the inbox and web browser shortcuts, while below the screen are sitting the Talk and End buttons, two soft keys, along with the navigation toggle. You shouldn’t encounter any issues using the smartphone since the keys have a spacious layout.
Hiding behind that display is a full QWERTY keyboard which you can access by sliding the face of the AT&T 8125 to the right. The keyboard consists of generous, tactile buttons but it lacks dedicated numeral keys which means that you will have no other choice but to press the Function button first in order to input symbols and numbers. We should mention that the backlighting is not very powerful but it should be enough for when you are typing in a darker environment.
Sitting on the left side is a volume rocker along with a one-touch button for opening the Comm Manager where you will be able to activate Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, ActiveSync and vibrate mode. Looking at the right spine of the AT&T 8125 we find an infrared port, voice-recorded button, reset hole, camera-activation key and a flash. At the back you’ll see the camera lens that comes with a self-portrait mirror and a flash. The bottom of this smartphone made by HTC is home for the mini USB/power port, 2.5mm jack and the stylus holder, while on top of the device sits a miniSD card slot.
Under the hood of this device is a TI OMAP 850 processor running at 200 MHz, along with 64MB of ROM and 128MB of SDRAM which are enough to offer a smooth user experience in Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC Edition. The OS comes with mobile versions of Word, PowerPoint and Excel, along with a ClearVue PDF viewer, task manager, zip utility and Download Agent.
The handset also comes with Windows Media Player 10 Mobile that offers support for various multimedia formats like MP3, WMA, WAV, AMR and AAC. It also can handle album art and will do MPEG-4 video streaming. The 1.3 mpx camera can record videos at a maximum resolution of 176 x 144 pixels in either MPEG-4 or Motion-JPEG AVI with sound.
The battery of the AT&T 8125 has a rated talk time of 5 hours and a standby time of up to 7 days.
