    Bold 9700 Makes Cut For Bells HSPA List



    BGR caught wind of Bells HSPA list, Nothing too solid but we should be looking at a November release of this device. The 9700 has made the list along with the Bold 9000 and the Storm 2. This should make for an interesting release, with 2 highly wanted devices on the list.

    You like how they word that "roam globally". Please someone correct me if I'm wrong but this device is not coming to be compatible with the local hspa network.
    I was told be my contact that none of the devices set to launch before 2010 will be.

    What do you mean by the local HSPA network? Bell is only launching an HPSA/HSPA+ network. Thus it has to work in Canada on HSPA.

    The current devices and future devices that are currently in production ie 9550 and the 9700 are running on a different frequency then this hspa that telus/bell are testing now.

    These devices are using a european frequency hence the "global" comment.

    This hspa release is a 3.5G network and it will only be running in a few canadian markets. Vancouver is the pilot city and it's up for the olympics.

    IMO it's a really bad attempt to make the rest of the world think Vancouver is up to speed with the new network.

    Telus/Bell are also working on the LTE 4G network that is set to launch in mid to late 2010.

    Telus's position is that this 3.5G network is not that much better then 1XEV. Which is what we all have now. Soooo those of us who bought into this whole HSPA ready device sales pitch are SOL.
