    I like the 'broadband' comment- I guess iDen isn't always a step behind.

    I guess that means for those who want to take advantage of WiDEN, the
    majority of the Nextel Telephone Possessors will have to purchase new
    Nextel Hardware.

    I'm not sure if my i730 is WiDEN-Ready, though.....

    iDEN seems to be a very resilient technology if you ask me. What's Matt
    Drudge's statement, "Often imitated, never quite duplicated" (I'm thinking
    Verizon PTT here...).

    Re: Higher speed data to come

    Thing is, I am totally unaware whether or not Nextel Customers will be
    required to purchase new Nextel Hardware to take advantage of the
    upcoming WiDEN Technology. I'm not sure if it's what I said, or if it's
    some kind of Nextel Phone Firmware Update that I have to deploy, I'm not
    sure what the situation of converting iDEN to WiDEN would be, since
    WiDEN is gonna be more technologically advanced than iDEN.

    Re: Higher speed data to come

    I would assume it will require new hardware to take advantage of, but that's
    not really anything new in the Cell phone industry (think AMPS>TDMA>GSM or
    AMPS>CDMA).

    Probably will mean new hardware, but in any new industry (and cellular would
    still fall into this category) most new technologies on the back end
    usually require new user hardware.

    What I found most interesting was the refernece to potential broadband
    development. The thought of being able to use some business apps at high
    speed over the network is a wonderful possibility.
