3g??
 
this model will be 3g as we all know.


what exactly is 3g in terms of CDMA??


i have a pearl on sprint's EVDO network. will this berry run in EVDO or EVDO revA? or what?

and is EVDO Considered 3g?? or is "3g" strictly for gsm carriers?

EVDO is 3g
3G - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ok thanks. i prob should have searched first. so evdo REV A is essentially 4th grn technology persay.


thanks for pointing out my lack of searching lol

i think Rev. A is like 3.5G. the 4G stuff i think would be WiMax for sprint and verizon will use LTE for 4G.
The 3G announcement you here often are for the GSM (AT&T / Tmobile) networks getting 3G data.

I think he means:

"From what we, down here in the USA, hear about Rogers exhorbitantly priced data plans, Rogers is apparently very proudd of their 3.5G network"

Yeah. I agree totally. YOUR 6GB plan costs MORE than OUR UNLIMITED plan.

Ill keep my unlimited data and text for 40 with my calling included.

Verdict:

Woo Sero. Boo Canada. =P
