MOGUL FIRST HIGH SPEED HANDSET
Sprint today released an upgrade making one of its phones the first in the U.S. to access the Internet wirelessly at broadband speeds.
A software patch for the HTC Mogul allows the smartphone to access Sprint’s high-speed EV-DO Rev. A network, the company said.
The upgrade lets Mogul users access the Internet at up to 1.4 megabits per second.
Until today, the higher speed Rev. A network — offered by both Sprint and Verizon Wireless — has been available using only laptop computers or PCs equipped with wireless connections cards.
“The Mogul by HTC now delivers the full power of the Sprint mobile broadband network from the convenience of a handset, giving our customers a speed and capacity advantage unavailable anywhere else,” Danny Bowman, Sprint’s vice president of customer equipment, said in a statement.
Rev. A, where available, allows users to download files at speeds between 600 kilobits per second and 1.4 megabits per second. Users can upload files at up to 350 kilobits per second to 500 kilobits per second.The speeds are comparable to those offered by DSL, the wired high-speed Internet service available from traditional telephone companies.
Sprint has been selling the Mogul, a smartphone that runs on the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 operating system, since last June. The phone costs $199.99 with rebates.
