    Would be nice if it was really available. Is it true that Palm OS can't use 3G?

    Isnt the sprint Centro 3G? I know I have EVDO coverage, which is way fast enough.

    sprint is 3g, it is ev-do. at&t's centro is on edge, and 2.5g.

    Palm OS can handle 3G (EvDO is 3G) it just can't handle the requirements of GSM 3G (ATT). From what I understand the crux is the ability to handle data and voice simultaneously. Palm OS can't. Not a problem for Sprint and Verizon because they have not chosen to implement 3G in that manner. At least that is how I understand things.

    In Australia, they are now selling phones claiming to be 3.5 G. What is that?

    Well, technically EDGE is 3G. But in practice, yes, it is only considered to be 2.5.
