Im kind of bummed I like HTC but I wish their was a release of exact date for Jav, Bold (US), and Thunder and not just "Q3"

I'm definitely sure if Verizon is getting the Niagra phone it would be 3g capable since Verizon prides themselve to be the best 3g company out there. The T-Mobile verison on the other hand maybe something to think about. Most likely since T-Mobile is just now releasing their 3g network and a couple of other new 3g phones the Javelin may be 3g also. Let's just hope T-Mobile doesn't make the mistake of releasing the Javelin on their old Edge network.

In the US, T-Mobile was the first carrier to start offering UMA services. UMA has been officially ratified by the 3GPP and has been renamed GAN, or Generic Access Network, though most often the technology is still referred to by the UMA name.

i cant beleiv some of these posts! 3.5g? 3g on cdma network? are u kidding me do u just make this up as u go. 3g is a gsm only feature evan this site gets it wrong when they give the specs for a cdma phone calling it 3g. if u have a cdma phone its either rev. A or rev. 0
