The report also claims that Apple has negotiated to a deal to share a portion of the monthly revenues from subscribers, changing the way handset makers and retailers do business with mobile carriers.

Telus EVDO Rev A

Canadian cell provider Telus started the weekend by introducing the first Canadian instance of EVDO Revision A broadband.

The enhanced speed is ideal for pro photographers or others who might need to send larger files away from a Wi-Fi hotspot, Telus says.
