    Probably cuz it's much more expensive and would drive up the price of the unit.

    WHA? That seems way too far off.

    I kindaof thought of that.

    More importantly,
    I Just looked over the comparison of the 6050 chip to the 7600 chip
    http://www.cdmatech.com/chip_results...0&chip=MSM7600

    Apparently the 6050 chip doesn't have SD card support?!?! I found this to be odd and could be the deciding factor on whether there's a multi-chip implementation on the 650 that could actually make EV-DO possible on it.

    So if Joe doesn't mind maybe he can get us some more "internal" information on what chip is controlling the SD expansion slot and further conclude the mystery of if the 650 can do EV-DO.

    I'm kind of excited now

    Furthermore what chip is controlling to 600 since chips ultimately determine what the device is capable of??

    I'll see what i can do, I'll try to read all the info on the chip but the sd slot is on a different module so i'll see if there is anything on that.

    The Qualcomm chipset doesn't handle the Palm part of the phone. That's what the Intel XScale is for. It does the I/O with the SD, USB, etc. Interestingly, the specs show that the 6050 doesn't do bluetooth, so I'm wondering how exactly the bluetooth headsets communicate with the phone?

    There's another chip for that. It's a Broadcom 2035.

    Cheers, Perry.

    Put this to rest. PalmOne has told me that it is not possible to run EV-DO on the current Sprint and Verizon 650.

    On another note, Sprint still hasn't confirmed if they will upgrade the Audiovox 660x to EV-DO.

    I guess we wait for the 700.

    Cheers, Perry.

    yeah, I was hoping it would be capable also!
