HSUPA Grows Closer To a Reality

At ITU Telecom in Hong Kong, several manufacturers are showing off HSUPA, the next evolution in 3G technology after HSDPA. Qualcomm will be demonstrating an HSUPA network with 1.5 Mbps upload speeds; HSDPA is currently limited to 384 Kbps uploads. LG and Samsung both have working HSUPA handsets at the show, which are live on test networks. No Carriers outside of Asia have yet committed to HSUPA, however many - including Cingular - have built their 3G networks to be software upgradeable. So it will be relatively quick and easy to move to the new standard once handsets and other equipment is available. Qualcomm is also giving visitors a taste of the next version of HSDPA, which is capable of 7.2 Mbps downloads.

The speeds are quite impressive, but i wonder why would you want that kind of speed in a phone that could very well fill out all of its memory in a few mins with that, plus the fact the actual downloads made with them are just small files and applieca...
