Top message: Any word on New iDen phones coming soon? by DarkSt0rm
Replying to: Re: Any new phones... by maelo
I can see that there will be new phones for iDEN but really when this network was first rolled out, things we have now on other networks was not in the first blue prints for alot of companies. IM, Pic and video mail, facebook, or even Youtube on a mobile phone. Text was rudimentary at best for the second gen iDEN phones. Things like EVDO, EDGE, and now WiMax, and LTE (new 4G platforms for data) has sprung most major carriers far beyond iDENs limits. Yes the i1 is a android, but without WiFi to really power it, the i1 is moving at the same speed as a power chair on the autobahn. As far as I know there has been no R&D to bring iDEN to the same level as the other networks. iDEN will have still have its place in the world for sometime still since it is the most secure network out there which is the reason a lot of federal emergency dept. still use them as well as the 2 way still has the fastest set up time. Someday that will change too. Then iDEN will fully go the way of the dinosaur.
