Nokia today announced the world's first successful cdma2000 1xEV-DV high-speed data call. The call was completed at Nokia's CDMA product creation center in San Diego. The call, achieving a peak data rate of 3.09 Mbps, was made between a test set based on a Nokia 2285 handset upgraded with a Nokia 1xEV-DV Release C chipset, and a Racal Instruments 1xEV-DV basestation emulator. 1xEV-DV Release C is a TIA- and ITU-approved 3G standard that provides forward data rates 20 times that of current cdma2000 networks.
