First HSUPA call made, which is the uplink version of HSDPA. HSDPA is an upgrade to the 3G network, and HSUPA eventually will run at 14Mbps (up and downlink) max speed, but phones that manage 3.5Mbps (download) will be out before christmas.
but i doubt we will get 3.5Mbps each in our handies - xDSL can give y speed, but we have to share it with z people.
i hope i'm Rong.
Well 3.5Mbps is the max speed for the current generation of processors, but the next generation around next year should be able to get up to the full 14Mbps, even if it doesn't get up there, and the contention ratio (which isn't a simple calculation, some data can be given higher priority) is 4-1 (data) you still get 3.5Mbps.
Not completely unfeasible that only 4 people a cell are demanding full download bandwidth, as the data bandwidth is dynamically switched, so if you're just pootling around on simple WAP pages, you won't get any bandwidth to speak of.
I'd love to see some info on that, really would. I have seen some 500MHz cores and I know AMD say they have developed a core that runs up to 1GHz for mobile phones, but I wonder what their power management is like. It's all well and good having a massive processor, but if it kills the battery, it's useless...
Usually you'll have a number of processors though, I've seen phones in the past with 3 processors running at more than 100MHz...
It's incredible what's coming out over the next few years. IMO, mad features on phones have yet to take off bigtime!!
