Yes, its 3G,
No its not just 1xRTT

There is EVDO and EVDO RevA
but honestly I have had phones on both
and I never noticed a speed difference.
As long as the phone says EV or 3G in the status bar your good to go.

If you have a dedicated usb data card for a laptop
thats where you might see a slight difference, but on a phone I wouldnt worry about it.
The BB 8530 is a great little phone.
Plus Wi-Fi is always going to be faster than 3G anyway.
