EVDO Handhelds

Thursday, March 23, 2006

The availability of EVDO capable handsets has been one of the primary reasons why EVDO networks have not really been able to market it. The wireless cards target only the corporate user. Its the handheld's where the real moolah lies. Although the QC hybrid MSM chipsets, which use 3G1X for voice and EVDO for data have been on the market for some time, it has not really translated into ready availablity of EVDO handsets.

So OQO's news that its going to support EVDO is a welcome relief. Having a broad band wireless connection with this device could really make this a useful thing to have. When Rev A is deployed it will have voice capability as well. Mobile Phones then will have a good competitor then.
