Did a little searching ...

"The webConnect Rocket and Dell Inspiron Mini 10 are the latest mobile broadband products that deliver real customer benefits with faster speeds available today," said Cole Brodman, chief technology and innovation officer for T-Mobile USA.

Customers don't have to spend money on a device upgrade,[b/] which is a rarity in consumer electronics." ...

My guess is 3G blackberry users will see higher data rates on HSPA+ than what they see on straight 3G network now. Not necessarily the best possible, but higher.
