'Next G' iPhone?

, posted: 31-Oct-2007 21:11

If this report is to be believed, Telstra is in talks with Apple about an 850 Mhz WCDMA (Next G) device for the Australian market. It will be interesting if any other ‘3G’ bands, i.e. 2100 Mhz will also be added, which will likely be popular in Europe, Asia and down under. This is the second report I have seen today regarding this, and it would be a major coupe for Telstra in Australia.nzbnw

Hmm... iPhone on Telecom plans sound mighty tempting!  Would this (if it comes through) be the excuse I'm finally waiting on to make the switch?

Here's hoping . Interesting that Telecom's new network will be the only network (assuming the iPhone does not go 3G, which is unlikely) that will offer EDGE. Even so, with a 3G iPhone, EDGE is a much better fall back than GPRS.

Unless Vodafone change tack, and implement a network wide EDGE upgrade that is? This again is unlikely IMHO.
