Weekly Contest: ‘Why do you want 3G?’

59 Comments

Why do you need 3g?The BlackBerry Bold is coming (someday. Sigh.) All the latest rumors seem to indicate that a 3G iPhone could be announced as early as next Monday. But the question remains: why do you want 3G?

Is it for faster web-browsing? Multiplayer gaming? MP3 and other media downloads? Because EDGE’s 2.5G seems so 2005? Post a comment and let us know how a 3G BlackBerry is going to change your life, and if it gives you pause for concern in any way. For example, while an entirely different technology than what will be in the Bold, my EV-DO BlackBerry 8330 is balls for battery life. Do you believe RIM’s battery life assurances?

Post a comment and let us know. The person with the best answer will receive a FREE COPY OF MAGMIC’S THK3: CONNECTED and a slick BLACKBERRY COOL TEE SHIRT, just because we like you so much.

While it seems like everyone who made it to WES had a good time (apologies to Bla1ze and brayndeded’s friend’s broken foot), the winner has to be CONFIDENTIAL, who managed to not only be all over the show, but to run into the Jim Dog at the AT&T party and be the only person who knew who he was.

    I agree with -Tom- but he is wrong in case of the sms.
    It,s not only a question of speed.
    The BB with 3G it’s able, in theorie, to receive email during a voice or video-call.
    I,ve the experience from 8707v and it’s not only email.
    For applications sincronizing and uploading data e wonderful.
    Battery it’s important but we have a lot of solutions for that problem.
    Welcome again UMTS Blackberrys.

    I think 3g is just the next big thing. Yea we will enjoy it and can’t wait to get it but they hype us up all the time with newer software and then we wait like forever to get it. Where’s 4.5, come on.

    The reason why I will like to have 3G is mostly due to the fact that I work in informatic business that focuses on creating web sites for our potential clients. Since that I am with Rogers (using GSM) rather than Telus (using CDMA), I know that the HSPA will come, but I cannot for it right now. I will use this phone ASAP if you can to see what kinds of web sites our clients desire when I do not have a computer in front of me. I could be able to speak with them and to see the information that they want me to see. I also trust that RIM’s innovations are solid and that they are convenient for my needs.
