Vodafone goes hi-speed with HSDPA devices
Vodafone, the worlds largest international mobile operator, today unveiled their new line-up of 3G super-high-speed, practically broadband phones for this holiday season (am I allowed to say Xmas?).
The devices are exclusive to Vodafone (cheeky) and speedy as Gonzales on a caffeine binge.
They are all HSDPA enabled, (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access), which could help mobile operators offer speeds of 1.8 megabits per second to start with, rising to as much as 14mbps soon, bringing broadband speeds to mobile devices. (FINALLY!!!!) Existing 3G networks at best offer Internet speeds of about 384 kilobits per second (Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...).
Way to go Vodafone. Now you just need to get Vodafone Live working/off our screens and you're in business. And given your share price performance - get working!
