Qualcomm this week announced significant progress toward bringing HSUPA technology to market in 2007. The company is demonstrating its MSM7200 HSUPA chipset this week at EXPO COMM in Japan. The MSM7200 achieves 2.0 Mbps on the uplink, about six times faster than what is possible with current WCDMA and HSDPA networks. Ten device manufacturers are already working on HSUPA phones using the MSM7200. Qualcomm is also launching interoperability testing with other companies; Nokia and Nortel have also committed to HSUPA technology. HSUPA complements HSDPA by boosting uplink (upload) data speeds, allowing users to do things like send high-quality streaming video in addition to receiving it.

so will you need to get a new phone?
Come on now, you know that.
This isn't that big of a deal, though. HSUPA is only about the uplink, not the downlink. HSUPA won't help you download faster at all. It will only affect ce...
