250Mbps Super 3G Network in Japan

EngadgetMobile reported a story on the Japanese NTT DoCoMo telecom's recent test in successfully logging a peak download of 250Mbps over a test network known as Super 3G Network (aka 3.9G). Thats pretty amazing. Imagine if this technology rolled out today, on a 8GB iPhone or N95-4, it would take about 4 minutes before you fill up your storage at this rate. Wow!

My conversion:
8GB = 65536Mb (megabits)
65536MB/250Mb per second = 262 seconds
262 seconds = 4 min. 37 sec.

Back to reality, where my mobile web connection kept getting timed out...
