  • Jodd

    JSurfer earlier today noted that a new release of Jodd out.  Jodd is a general purpose Java library.  If you’re thinking about reinventing the wheel, it’s probably already been done in Jodd.  Browse through the javadocs for an idea of what you can do with it.  Jodd is distributed under a license that looks like a modified BSD one, so it should be suitable for incorporation to projects with lots of different license types.

  • EV-DV Sooner than you Think

    Phone Scoop brings news that EV-DV chips are slowly inching down the pipeline:

    STMicroelectronics (ST) and Texas Instruments (TI) today announced the delivery of sample CDMA 1xEV-DV chipsets to device manufacturers. In collaboration with Nokia, Korean carrier LG Telecom is testing the solution for its planned deployment of 1xEV-DV technology.

    We should start seeing EV-DV tech hitting sometime during 2005, with a more widespread rollout 2006ish.  This seems to be in line with what I learned about EV-DV at ETech.  That’s the “slow” Rev C though.  It can only pull down about 3 megabits.  The uplink isn’t that fast, but the downlink is what you’re really worried about anyway.  The uplink speed will be fixed when Rev D comes out.

    EV-DV is definitely a tech to keep an eye out for, and might hit some top 10 lists in 2005 or 2006.
