    Where is the information on the EVDO Treo to be released in the 4th quarter?

    That's the very reason I'm now with Cingular. Our "new" neighborhood we moved to in August is seven years old. It's a "high" income neighborhood, and I'll bet it has less than a dozen Sprint customers because its a "known" coverage hole. So bad, that they let me cancel all four lines of service with no penalty.

    It has also raised another quandry for me: I loved the Treo 650 convergence, but since Cingular is still on hold, I've resorted to a Motorola v551 and Dell Axim x50v (got a great Christmas deal 20% off) AND REAL BLUETOOTH AND EDGE. Nowhere near as nice as quick dialing from my Treo 650, but surfing the web on the VGA screen is a scream; email's pretty good; and EDGE truly is faster than PCS Vision. And then when I'm at Barnes & Noble, teh WiFi really kicks @$$.

    And above all, my voice quality on the MOTO is far better than my Treo 650 (not a single dropped call or "are you still there" question in a busy week of use). Isn't that what it's all about?

    I know, I know. I've been one of the most vocal evagelists for convergence, but this mishap has really reminded me (wake up call) that I like being on the bleeding edge of features, and that big, bright VGA screen on the Axim is a kick (plus CF, SDIO, etc.). I may just stay sidelined for a while and wait for the Treo 700.

    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    Exactly, me too. But the link you provided is talking about EV-DO and EV-DV in general, not the 650. What am I missing here...??

    I know it's current speed, but I'm referring to HSDPA, which Cingular is trialing (somewhere, I don't know exactly where) and have pretty much met the 14.4 mpbs speed.

    And I thought EV-DO wasn't simultaneous Data and Voice? (hence the name EVoulution Data Only vs EVDV = EVolution Data and Voice)

    I'd like to see some documentation backing up that statement.

    I thought so too on the whole EV-DO thing.
