3G, Pocket PC and more
Well, it seems the things are getting clear now. I know Telecom New Zealand was showing off their 3G service to some users during the last couple of weeks, and a report on Stuff shows Gary Rogers demonstrating the Harrier Pocket PC Phone Edition based on Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition (read our review) during a 3G demo.

The Harrier, if you don't know, is the CDMA EVDO version of the HTC Blue Angel. It's a Pocket PC with a slider keyboard, Bluetooth, Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition and CDMA EV-DO ready. This is the same device as announced last week by Sprint as PPC-6601 and PPC-6600.

The article says the average speed on their CDMA EVDO network is aroud 500kbps, and I've heard reports of bursts of 1.2mbps in Auckland. And driving from AKL airport to town with a connection all the way.

Vodafone is doing the same "show", and I was invited to one last week. They did not show any Windows Mobile device though. They had a Sony Ericsson Z1010 being used for video calls, a couple of Nokia 32xx for push-to-talk and their Mobile Connect Card, a PC card with GPRS/WCDMA capabilities. Shame it didn't work on that presentation.
