Although the RSS feed shows the headline, the press release is not on-line yet. So there you go, we have a scoop... Telecom New Zealand is planning to "turn the key" on its CDMA EV-DO Rev A service from 12 December 2006 and this card is in the lineup.
Bummer. Telecom New Zealand is undergoing some changes, people are moving positions, and I can't get things out them now. I couldn't get my hands on a Treo 700wx for review, did not get replies to other queries, and I had no access to any of their new CDMA EV-DO Rev A tests.
Completely the opposite of Vodafone New Zealand's current position and their relationship with us here at Geekzone. Interesting how things change in six months: sometime ago I was complaining the other way around.
