QChat not iDEN, right???

just to clarify... the linked news release implies this expansion of Nextel DirectConnect service is of the EVDO Rev. A based, QChat variety... not the iDEN kind.

references in the link:

-- "enhanced" PTT
-- Sprint Mobile Broadband network
-- Sanyo PRO 700 and Moto Renegade V950
the article says IDEN based PTT.

It's good that they're doing this...

iDEN might not be advanced technology but it's solid and reliable. Plus it will benefit Nextel/Boost customers and also draw in new ones.
