SPEED: How fast is GPRS and what's the maximum today you can reach
Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:16 CET under 09 - Thoughts

I had a lot of discussions in the past with friends, co-workers and Pocket PC enthusiasts about the new Pocket PC Phone Edition and GPRS. While GPRS wasn't interesting for too many peoples until today because it could be used with a Notebook or WAP only, it becomes more and more interesting now because it's the bearer service used on the o2 xda or the T-Mobile Phone Edition. However, for most of you it seems that GPRS is still a secret in the ways how it works and how fast it could be. So here is more background information for you to understand GPRS better and therefore understand better what a Phone Edition Pocket PC is able to deliver or even not:

GPRS works with 2 components: the Coding Schemes (up to 4) and the Time Slots (up to 8 while 8 is the maximum a GSM/GPRS Base Station supports; doesn't matter if it is voice or data).

Are you still looking for a cool Pocket PC optimized Search Engine too? Well, mostly I like to use the Pocket PC optimized Google version but Google has one disadvantage: it lists all sites on the Pocket PC it has indexed, doesn't matter if it is Pocket PC optimized or not.

Another way is gone by AlltheWeb.com with "All the Mobile Web, All the Time". This is a Search Engine, dedicated to mobile contents and lists WAP, i-mode, HDML and PDA sites only. On your desktop you can select which content you are looking for while on the Pocket PC it lists PDA optimized sites by default:
