Cingular adopts BlackJack

Cingular has formally announced its deployment of the BlackJack smartphone by Samsung. The 3G device will run Windows Mobile 5, and make use of EDGE broadband to deliver content through Cingular's BroadbandConnect service. Aside from video clips and Web browsing, Cingular will be offering what claims is the first subscription music service for US cellphones, including downloads from eMusic, Napster, and Yahoo. Owners will also be able to receive 25 XM radio channels through XM Radio Mobile. Other features of the phone will include a 1.3MP camera, stereo Bluetooth 2.0, and a QWERTY keyboard. The BlackJack should ship November 16th for as little as $200, but only after signing for a $100 rebate, a two-year contract, and specific voice and data plans.
