However, CDMA and EV-DO run at what are close to GSM 3G speeds, average 400-900 kbps and max of 2.4 mbps for EV-DO and 3.4 mbps for current 3G implementations. Theoretical limits for 3G are upwards of 10-14 mbps, but I really doubt that you will see that on a handheld/cellular device.
Either way I think my point remains. Everyone is saying there isn't a 3G BB device avail, but they in fact are avail, just not for GSM.
I am new to the BB world so I may not fully understand, but I tether to my BB with my laptop and easily get 3G speeds.
Why do most people equate 3G to GSM? It is also used to signify CDMA EV-DO as well, isn't it?
Like I said, I'm new to this so I'm no expert.
