I'm not entirely clear on what phones are HSDPA. I'm loving the specs on the Nokia N80 but I am not entirely sure if it is HSDPA. I think this article implies it is not so will not get the full 3.6 Mbps.
I've been waiting to buy a phone now for over two years. I'd like to get one that has the N80 specs. Should I just wait another 6 months for the full HSDPA phones to come out?
Correct. The Samsung ZX20 is the only HSDPA phone confirmed so far.
Someone please tell me moto didn't drop the dual speakers and vibesync of the E398! That was one of its coolest features and I don't see any speaker grills on the E2 (unless they're hidden in the back).
Why on earth would you want stereo speakers in a phone? They add size and weight, and you can't get good sound from speakers that small, nor a good stereo effect from speakers that close together... the whole concept makes no sense to me.
It does h...
am I the only one who wants this headset?
I think that the headsets have been getting too small and organic looking as of late.
I want a robotic, futuristic, helmet looking earpiece that I don't fear will ever be lost or fall off
I really like the small nokia headset, but i agree that anything that makes you look like a cyborg is cool.
"...speaker-independent voice dialing from VoiceSignal (unusual for a Samsung GSM phone)"
and that's just on the Cingular side of the GSM boat. Considering there's only been the X497 POS outside of those for the last 6 months or so, that appears to be the majority, not unusual. Is it just me being picky? 🙂
I was thinking more about their global portfolio, and the last couple of years. Samsung has traditionally always had voice dialing on their CDMA models, and very rarely on their GSM ones.
The new Samsung for cingular
is ugly, why would samsung realize such sexy models for verizon and sprint but crap for cingular. I was about to complain about the fact that they have WCMDA models and the new HSPDA model's coming out semi back to back but then i realized that i'm guessing the regular WCMDA models will be cheaper then the HSPDA one's. Still pointless to me, I would much rather get a phone at the full speed espically if it's coming out 2 months afterwards.
LG 3G phone for Cingular....
Anyone else notice that the sticker on the back says "Qualcom 3G CDMA"?
shouldn't be a big surprise, Qualcom's all over WCDMA. aren't they being sued by nokia + ericsson - something about being bogus with patents? Then qualcom tried to B-slap nokia over something stupid and it seemed like they were just trying to get ba...
That just means it has a Qualcomm chipset inside. It's a bit confusing that they call it "CDMA" and not "WCDMA", but nevertheless WCDMA as a CDMA-type technology is what that means, not CDMA as in EV-DO or anything like that...
