    On a PPC-6700? Is that the EVDO version of the PPC-6600?

    the 6600/6601 is capable of evdo.
    the 6700 *appears* to be a new device and has evdo enabled out of box.

    btw, seattle, WA, also has EVDO via Sprint (at least to my knowledge)

    EVDO is launched at the Airport here in Seattle, but the timeframe for full-network coverage is still unknown. Looking forward to it, though!

    Anybody wanna take a stab at how long before we see EV-DO prices in the sub-$25/mo price range??

    Unless you're bugging the CEO's office, there's no way to know.

    That's a good question. I personally think we'll continue to see different pricing for EVDO handsets vs. EVDO PC cards. I would expect handsets to remain much less expensive than the current $80 for the unlimited PC cards. But IF (big "if" there...) handsets allow BT DUN/Tethering, I'd expect the pricing to increase proportionately.

    My best guess - Sprint handsets with EVDO will remain in the $15-30 range for unlimited w/o DUN/Tethering. Handsets w/DUN would be more like $40, and PC cards will remain at market parity - $80 for unlimited.

    We probably wont see any marked changes in the $80/unlimited plans until there is some real competition - most likely 2Q2006 or later.
