HTC Shift to Arrive on Sprint!
Well Well, it looks like folks that have been waiting for the HTC Shift to really and truly arrive in the States are in for a pleasant surprise - Sprint is going to carry it! That obviously means it's going to be an EVDO device (instead of the GSM variant in Europe). The Shift is an awfully sweet Windows Vista UMPC combined with a Windows Mobile device. You should know, however, that some folks are relatively unhappy that the Windows Mobile side of the device isn't really a full version of Windows Mobile, it's called

Not. I am with AT&T now and after being with Sprint, EVDO is where its at. And Sprint is taking it to another level with 4G (WiMax) a.k.a. ZOHM. AT&T's 3G market is reletively smaller than Sprint and Verizons EVDO market. My
700p with crappy Blazer on Sprint's EVDO network is considerably faster than HSDPA on my BJ II. I am planning on putting my notebook on the airwaves and it won't be with AT&T...EVDO is where I am headed being in more markets in the U.S. And of course you get service in more places around the world...its called GSM, daaa. CDMA is not used in Europe.
No, GSM is older and was before CDMA. CDMA is a newer of the two. Your HSDPA is based on simular technology as CDMA 3G to get GSM up to 3G standards. CDMA's EVDO has been a step ahead of GSM in data and was rolled out before AT&T started expanding on their 3G network. I am with AT&T now and I love their voice coverage where I live but it doesn't mean I am on GSM's gonads.
What do you mean about you guys...I am with AT&T(read the sig). I have one phone line with Sprint still I gave to my daughter that I pay almost nothing for with my corporate discount. I really liked Sprint EVDO and crystal clear calling along with my stellar savings, but their voice network is lacking where I live and where my extended family resides.
