 CDMA2000InfoCDMA2000This is a 3G standard to communicate voice and data through a network. The first implementation was 1xRTT (1 times Radio Transmission Technology) and has a theoretical maximum data rate of 153 kbps. An upgraded standard called 1xEV-DO Rev. A, or sometimes shorted to EV-DO (Evolution-Data Optimized) has a peak data rate of 3000 kbps.1xEV-DO rev. A  
Connectivity
 WiFiInfoWiFiA localized wireless internet connection standard that operates in the 2.4 GHz band.
