    ...I've decided to hate all you people who are going to get the Pre tomorrow. I'm also going to sign off from the Internets (and especially T|C) so I don't have to see your gloats.

    At least till I can lay my hands on a Pre, myself.

    So, when do you think it will be available in India?

    Reliance has just launched their countrywide '3G GSM network' in India and with number portability coming to India from September, the Palm 'Pre' would be a perfect way for them to get people to switch over to their network. I really wonder do the marketing people at these companies sleep on their jobs.

    PS: Reliance already has a countrywide CDMA network in India.

    India is all GSM, no? If AT&T gets the GSM Pre in 6 months or so it should follow quickly in Asia and Europe. You could have it by the end of the year, though I fear that's a best-case scenario. So hate away!

    Nope... India has had both GSM and CDMA for ages. And both are available nationwide. And some companies (BSNL or Reliance, for example) have both networks, and some also have dual mode (if that's the correct term) handsets.

    I don't have any clue, but it sure is going to seem like a hundred years.

    Are they running EVDO on their CDMA hardware? What frequencies do they use?
    Palm Vx -> Treo 600 -> Treo 700p -> Centro -> Pre (Launch Phone 06/06/09) -> AT&T Pre Plus with Sprint EVDO swap -> Samsung Epic 4G w/ Froyo

    Apparently, the BSNL EvDO network is 800 MHz. But that's a stand-alone service for laptops and such. Reliance and Tata Indicom do not as yet have EvDO. They will probably wait for BSNL (govt. owned) to establish the market first.

    Reliance launched their EVDO services in March of 2009 but it is limited to data card services only. The service is being marketed as Reliance Netconnect Broadband+ and they are advertising speeds of "upto" 3.1mbps for downloads and "upto" 1.8 mbps for uploads.

    PS: Actual real world results so far seem to be nowhere close to 3.1 mbps. Rather most people are reporting maximum download speeds in the range of 1.1mbps and on an average in the range of 700kbps.
