    Hey,
    What is EVDO?

    What does it stand for?

    What is the benefit of EVDO?

    Thanks,
    Nathan

    EVOLUTION DATA OPTIMIZED. It is an all data cdma network and its benefit is highspeed data transfer.

    For us GSM users we have EDGE. I'm not up on the particulars of which is faster, but the GSM highspeed wireless is EDGE.

    It is the high speed data network for CDMA. For GSM the equivalent would be UMTS or the even faster hspda.

    I never tried EDGE but I heard EVDO is faster. I really don't know though.

    EVDO is so fast for me I don't even use Wifi.

    If I have a Sprint Treo 650, can I obtain EVDO?

    Hi Nathan !!

    This was covered extensively in the forum about a year ago -- the 650 cannot be upgraded to EV-DO -- it requires a different chip set.

    Sorry, Perry.

    AWE Crap! I just read an article, EVDO allows me to connect my wireless Laptop through my phone?

    However I understan I cannot obtain EVDO?

    Thats a shame, a dang shame!

    Thanks Perry.

    I am not sure what your question is -- EV-DO is a type of data transmission that is faster than the current method on CDMA networks. If your device is EV-DO capable -- it will automatically (I believe) use that speed -- if it is not -- the backup (slower) method is still there. EV-DO on Sprint is being deployed in major metropolitan areas (for instance Grand Rapids, MI is one "big" EV-DO hot spot, but out lying areas do not have it).

    Cheers, Perry.

    Sprint and Verizon (and probably the other carriers on their high spped type of networks) are offering "Air Cards" that provide EV-DO speed wireless internet access for laptops -- at $59 to $79 per month. PowerVision(EV-DO) for the Treo 700P on Sprint should be around $15 or $20 per month. You can use your Treo as a modem for your laptop -- but the carriers are starting to watch that type of usage.

    Cheers, Perry.

    I can't recall where I had seen the speed and bandwidth graph but basically for now EVDO is faster while you're in a major city or near a central switch though EDGE is constant no matter where you travel on the network. So there's less chance of dropped data connection with EDGE over EVDO because the bandwidth is constant and less likelyhood of a bottleneck with EDGE.

    Stupid question:

    Is EVDO considered a protocol? I'd like to think of it as a standard implemented over the TCP/IP stack, but I can see how one could make an arguement for a protocol...
