Sprint Mogul EVDO Rev A

Sprint on Monday fulfilled a promise made in June and has released an update for the Mogul to add EVDO Revision A. The update boosts the speed of the HTC-made smartphone's Internet access, particularly for uploads: while downloads jump from a peak 700Kbps to as much as 1.4Mbps in better real-world conditions, uploads climb several times from 70Kbps to 500Kbps. Patching to the newer standard is said to make photo and video uploading more feasible than on the standard EVDO (Revision 0) network.

The Windows Mobile 6 phone's update is available for free and is usable immediately on Sprint's network, most of which already supports the faster speeds of Revision A. The Mogul can step back to the slower standard as well as legacy 1xRTT networking when in less populated or fringe coverage areas.
