I know that theoretically the Intel chipset would support UMTS and that would lead to a theoretical possiblity of a simple firmware update to make the phone capable of accessing HSDPA... THAT said the speeds you posted even if they are attainable (which currently they are not -> about 700kbps is the max on Cingulars HSDPA) the processor on the device has a limit to the speed in which it can process and receive data... it would be like running a broadband connection on a Pentium 2 processor at 350mHz and then switching to another computer on the same connectuon running a Pentium 4 3.2gHz with H/T the latter computer will seem to have a faster connection to the internet when in reality it is simply able to process the incoming data faster than the first computer. hence why when one runs a bandwidth speed test on a PDA it will be slower than if the same test is run on a laptop with a PC card in it the same internet speed is available but the handheld device cant process the incoming data fast enough.
