Sprint Treo 650 EV-DO Capable?

15 February 2006

Gizmodo reportedly has a source at either Palm or Sprint ( depending on which post you read ) that claims EV-DO is a software solution – not hardware. That would imply that a software upgrade could bring EV-DO to the Treo 650. I have to admit to being skeptical, but can you imagine if this […]

Cingular 8125 Review

11 February 2006

With such a great design, it was only a matter of time before Cingular adopted the HTC Wizard ( GSM version of the HTC Apache. ) Cingular calls it the 8125, and no doubt it’ll be successful. I just can’t say enough good things about this design. The 8125 looks like it has a nicer […]
