HSDPA BlackBerry on the RIM drawing board

Phew. RIM co-CEO Mike Lazaridis has confirmed that the company is working on high speed 3G version of the device, telling the Financial Times the company is experimenting with a HSDPA model.

In an interview on his digital lifestyle, the FT asks Lazaridis what’s his latest squeeze? His answer: “One of our prototypes – a 3.5G BlackBerry. It’s very fast over third-generation networks that have HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access).”

Good news for all those who want their mobile email that little bit quicker.

    Actually, email is about the least useful thing for which to use HSDPA. A typical email is less than 10KB – you’d barely notice the difference between HSDPA and CSD. Granted, if you’re downloading huge PoewerPoint documents, it’s probably useful.

    Can you guess the real reason for the speed?

    BlackBerry really needs this… not for email, but everything else is sloooow on GPRS.
