Qualcomm Suspends EV-DV Development
Mar 4, 2005, 4:45 PM by (staff)
Due to a lack of interest from carriers, not just in the US but world-wide, Qualcomm has suspended development of EV-DV chipsets. EV-DV is a high speed data standard designed as a faster, more efficient alternative to EV-DO on CDMA 2000 networks. However carriers have instead chosen to launch EV-DO networks since hardware for them is available today, and the next revision of EV-DO (rev. A) adds many of the speed boosts and features that EV-DV offers while maintaining backwards compatibility. Qualcomm has not pronounced EV-DV dead yet, maintaining it will monitor the market for interest in the standard.
