    Hi milestoners,

    Is there an .sbf file available for manual update of the UK variety? I'm in Dubai with a UK unit, and the premature 2.1-update1 release runs fine, with the exception that my 3g connection gets killed and converts to HSPDA (probably because of network incompatability).

    I'm guessing (hoping) that the official UK release will be compatible with Dubai telecom networks, as companies here seem to copy the UK in many ways.

    I just need the .sbf file to manual install!! Anyone know where I can find it?

    cheers,

    So you are saying that you prefer 3G over HSDPA? HSDPA is around 10-20 times faster than 3G!!!!

    No offense dude, but I lol'd.

    HSDPA has been coined 3.5G, 3G+, etc... Purely because of it's speed in comparison.

    HSDPA is offers higher bitrates and lower latencies than 3G. This article sums it up pretty much.

    EDGE: 236kbps down, 100kbps up.
    3G: 384kbps down, 64kbps up.
    HSDPA: 1.8mbps down, 384 kbps up.

    Though the data for HSDPA on that article is pretty old since HSDPA is capable of waaaaay higher than that (I'm talking 5-6mbps and more).

    oh, snap! thanks for the 101, guys. i presumed that since it would start with 3g then switch, that HSDPA was slower. good to know :p
