EV-DO Rev B to Debut This Year at 9Mbps Speeds

All i need now is HBO on my VZM Treo 700P

EV-DO (Evolution-Data Optimized) fans can expect a juicy speed boost later this year when Qualcomm releases EV-DO Rev B, an update to the just launched Rev A. The new version of mobile broadband will use a spiced up chipset that'll allow for download speeds of up to 9.3Mbps (topping Rev A's 800kbps download speeds).

So what does this mean? Well, aside from making streaming video a more pleasurable experience (goodbye, choppy video), Rev B will also allow for new apps to mosey on into your phone, such as mobile TV. No word on when we'll see Rev B on Sprint or Verizon, although just the thought of the speed boost is enough to whet our appetite.:rocks:
