Off-topic: Is there NO way to order a damn phone through Cingular's online store WITHOUT having to subscribe to one of their wireless packages as well??? I've tried twice on two different occasions to do this, and each time I see no "Check Out" feature on Cingular's site. Madness!

I want to replace my HP 6515 with this new machine but am connerned about the speed of the TI processor.
I use medical applications by Skyscape on a daily basis.
I'm sure the native applications will be fast enough, but would prefer a hands on comparison before I buy.
These units are not available in stores yet and Cingular online sales knows nothing about the CPU.

Digital-Doc - imn my opinion, with using this device for nearly two months, that TI CPU is a turtle. I am not sure I understand the purpose of it, to tell you the truth. The CDMA version of this device has a 400 xscale, and while a lot of people who have compared the two admit that they are nearly on-par when playing games and video with out hippups or whatever - I still think that the whole hourglass thing would have been avoided by adding something more robust.
It may have been a battery drain issue, but I would have enjoyed the power, as I keep my charger handy at all times everywhere!

Thanks for the feedback. What is the exact name of the device you are using since this Cingular device just came out?
Is yours the iJam or whatever HTC Wizard that has the same specs including RAM, OS and CPU?
I read a review on phonescoop.com by someone who states this Cingular device is much faster than his Palm Treo 650!
I fear you are correct but I am hoping that it will at least be on a par with the 312 MHz in my HP with Mobile 2003 and partioned RAM at 64/64.

I had the t-mobile Wizard product. It was an evaluation, of course. that was a few months ago. The specs are identicle to all wizards on the GSM, I believe. 64/128. TI OMAP850 @ 200Mhz approx. I never compared the 650 to anything but a palm product, but it wouldnt suprise me. Maybe its a memory management thing.
I still liked the Wiz.. it just needs to be speedier

I used the Cingular 8125 at a Cingular store. Put in my SIMMS chip and all.
I compared it to my HP 6515. Seemingly just as fast, even though 400 contacts were not loaded. Resolution is tighter on the 8125 but actually harder to see for my eyes even with reading glasses. 8125 is thicker with a more narrow screen. Very nice unit though.
I am staying with my 6515, even though it has an aging OS and less memory. Visibility with third party medical applications is important for me. Both units cost the same at Cingular.
