After Sprint backed down on their promise to release 3G support for the phone Springboard module that I use, I’ve been thinking about maybe looking into a new phone. Probably wouldn’t get one quite yet, but it’s time to start researching.
So I poked around the web a bit and I ran into a couple of problems:
- CDMA 3G is really the best way to go for wireless data. GSM is okay, but doesn’t allow you to multiplex voice and data at the same time.
- There are no CDMA phones that also have Bluetooth.
- There is a Bluetooth Springboard adapter
- There is a Bluetooth GPS Reciever
So it seems that for the moment I couldn’t switch to a provider that had both 3G and Bluetooth even if I wanted to. Sucks to be me I suppose.
