CEO says he is playing with prototype
by Stuart Miles
RIM's president and CEO Mike Lazaridis has confirmed that the company is developing a HSDPA enabled BlackBerry.
The comments came in a FT interview when the paper asked the CEO what his latest squeeze was.
"One of our prototypes - a 3.5G BlackBerry. It's very fast over third-generation networks that have HSDPA."
The news will be music to the ears of BlackBerry fans looking for fast internet access away from a Wi-Fi connection.
Earlier in the year we reported on rumours that RIM was working on a 9000 series BlackBerry that would sport HSDPA as well as Wi-Fi and be due out in 2008.
We will keep you posted.
