A one minute youtube video is about 2-2.5M, that will come down in about 10 seconds. Like I mentioned to poly, you also have the factor of how fast will the other end send out. For example, youtube puts out a 500KB/sec + blast for the first few seconds, but after enough comes through to buffer it throttles back to 100 or less for the rest of the download. A 1.4 M connection will be around 150KB/sec which will be plenty fast for 99% of the users and user's needs.<br><br>I just think everybody is making too much of the numbers. If you're never going to need the speed what's the big deal. If it's true and they throttle it back, and you want to stand by your principals, don't get one then. I'll let you know how much I enjoy mine 99.99% of the time. <br><br>The rumor may be just that, we'll have to wait and see.<br><br>------>#1 - JD's Trivia game<br><br>------>#2 - MM-MCF Trivia game
oh i'll get one -- likely a few weeks after they come out. i just don't like that they're treating iPhones differently than other 3G phones. <br><br>--<br>[color:red] Kansas Jayhawks -- 2008 National Champions </font color=red>
I know that you know I was being sarcastic about watching the beachball while driving. Or I haven't written a rant about people who do that often enough. The only reason why a loaded gun ownership while driving should be legal so I could empty a magazine of Kimber Grand Raptor 45 ACP into the back of the next coffee drinking phone chatting douchebag weaving down the highway in front of me.<br><br><br>(Just a little more sarcasm here. Not much, but a little )<br><br><br><br><br>

That's good news. My N82 comes with Nokia Maps (with as much preloaded map data as I can stand to download and install using Parallels - because of course there's no mac support...) - but a lot of the time I use Google Maps for s60 instead, it's a lot more useable even when you have to wait a second for the map to download. And it was free. I don't know how I feel about having to pay for tomtom.<br><br>[color:purple]A lopsided man runs best along the little side-hills of success<br>- Frank Moore Colby</font color=purple>
