    Anyone know if Sprint has any plans to use EDGE technology?

    If so, when?

    Thanks

    Sprint uses CDMA technology. To my knowledge EDGE is specific to GSM (Cingular, possibly T-Mobile). Sprint will use EV-DO technology in its next generation of data phones.

    I see. So what does everyone think. Will the Treo 650 ever be using EV-DO, or is that more for whichever Treo come after the 650?

    The 650 does dot have ev-do capability

    Edge is basically equivelant to sprints currently available 1xrtt protocol. Roughly 80-150 kbps) UMTS (gsm) and Evdo (sprint/cdma) are true 3g platforms 300k bursting to over 2 mbps.

    Really, so is Sprint's current service is about the same speed as EDGE? I thought EDGE was faster.

    So, if that's true, is pretty much the only benefit of GSM Treo 650 that you can use it abroad?

    I doubt they will use edge.
    I hope they use evdo soon.
