Qualcomm as a result won't give them access to use the EVDO chipset/info so Nokia can't compete when every phone as a standard becomes EVDO. They will make some last cutting-edge 1RxTT phones before dumping the CDMA format to focus more attention on (hopefully better) GSM handsets.
Currently those EVDO models Known are HTC Harrier & Apache, Sanyo 9000, Samsung a920 & 900, and the data card, Maybe the 7500 is too?
I have to say, Nokia (TI?) did a good job on the CDMA chipset, the speech quality is top-notch and the functions are still open (ringtones, Obex support, bluetooth, MMS etc) After much to-do ing I have decided on a Nokia 6235 but I will be implenting some way of bettering that horrid joystick.
