Can you believe it? We in the US actually beat Asia and Europe to the punch on HSDPA, a new WCDMA/UMTS-based 3G technology, now only being offered by Cingular. Ok, so we only have a data card for laptops so far, but Samsung and LG have both promised phones to go with this service later this month. Look for the Samsung ZX10 and the LG CU320, both with swivel megapixel cameras and a microSD memory card slot—and the ability to handle simultaneous voice and data connections. The CU320 will also come with Bluetooth and tri-band GSM, while the ZX10 lacks Bluetooth but comes with quad-band GSM.
