Kyocera DuraPlus Brings Durability to Sprint
CDMA should be able to do this quicker or maybe in real time. The neat thing is that now that this is CDMA based, it could be a feature such as PTT that we may see as an application for Andriod someday.
Are you high? All PTT on CDMA & GSM is an IP-based emulator, and they are NOWHERE NEAR as consisteltly fast as the true dispatch-based PTT service on iDEN.
The new Sprint Direct Connect supposedly does the best job of emulating PTT so far, but only time will tell if it is consistently as fast as iDEN-based PTT.
And don't forget, when the cell-phone channels all nut up in a local or regional emergency (hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, etc), your emulator-based PTT will stop dead, ju...
Certainly CDMA data speed is light-years better than WiDEN, no argument there.
In Nextel's defense, they had already rolled out regional trials of OFDMA-based high-speed data network to run alongside iDEN, to m...
I think the future/evolution of PTT will be the feature adds, the Push-to-X features, and not necessarily the PTT.
"The whole dispatched-based thing works but try making a voice call on it. Sounds like a tin can on a string."
Not sure what you are trying to say there, but I've used Nextel for just shy of ten years, and the audio quality for both DC & voice are superb. Not every call, but at least 95% of all calls, are perfectly clear, every bit as clear as Verizon (spouse has had VZ for those same ten years). We all know that EVERY carrier and EVERY technology has areas of signal where audio quality sucks.
But then there is AT&T, wherein audio quality sucks everywhere, all the time ;-)
All good though, I do agree with you on that, AT&T coverage here in NYC is...
I've had NextMail since Nextel first introduced it (was it 2003?). It's a great service, and my experience with Pacific DataVision is that it is a good outfit, like the old Nextel was.
Anyhow, PDV has had non-Nextel "NextMail" equivalent for years.
