- 349.345 kbps on 3G network
- 219.78 kbps on GSM (I must be in EDGE coverage since this value is very high for GPRS connection, even if the phone's showing "G" instead "E" ?)
Note that the speed results might be faster if running the test by downloading bigger size KB - 1MB or 2MB.

Test connection speed on your mobile here:
My Hazel scored 1143 kbps by downloading 100KB, would be more accurate if try it with bigger size KB.
Finally got my new Cedar yesterday! A bit pricey here in Thailand, costs ฿ 2790 or US$ 89.
I'm overall satisfied with this. The only drawbacks are display and speaker. Display is quite dim even in 100% brightness and loudspeaker is not loud.

AnonD-28254, 17 Dec 2011how do u say that practically there is no speed difference ???
Theoretically the hardware s... moreI have also tested the speeds at suburban parts of my city at my friends houses with best signal receptions and the speed was almost the same 20-25kbps constant and only sometimes its touched 30kbps or more, i.e. 99 percent its 20-25kbps and only 1 percent 30kbps or more.
So practically advantage is nil.
Its result of the Networks bottlenecks rather than Cedar's bottleneck.
And mind you that I have tested it with Nokia edge 32 phone, Samsung galaxy phone and Cedar.
So to take advantage of EDGE 32 phones you need EDGE 32 capable networks, which looks dream for now.
Presently using an EDGE 32 phone is just like using a 3G phone in a non-3G network.

Theoretically the hardware specs have been categorized acc to the hardware capability .. i.e class 10 is diff from class 32 edge technically !
Your statistical knowledge about diff edge speeds in diff cities might be right,but as yo said that u live in a posh area & also the speed testing u made were also in pretty crowded areas(i guess), there are chances u might have not experienced the actual speeds the network is capable of.
So the question is, why this speed difference ??
Ans is simple, the local mobile tower which your phone has linked up to may be subjected to overloading of gsm(network used to transmit-receive calls)bandwidth or even with gprs/edge bandwidth for data users .. so the congestion caused there by prevents the utilization of the full bandwidth provided to a user. so just to adjust the lack of available bandwidth the signal tower's automation system would limit you from reaching full device speed..(i.e to keep all connected users atleast online thus preventing unintentional disconnection)
diff service providers have variable user traffic and also would react uniquely to congestion and this is a fact. also to test this iv checked vodafones edge speed in one of my friends nokia N8 (edge class 33).. and the result during downloads via IDM was a GooD 35-37 KBps(Kilo BYTES per sec)-[Bangalore], not tested with docomo on N8. In this case, my friend was residing at outskirts of the city (probably less tower network congestion ova der).
as conclusion : you could try to test the edge speeds at some sub-urban places of your city, hopefully you see the speed touch at least 34 KBps(if edge class 32 only).also Make sure ders strong signal reception from tower..
as of now its damn sure that docomo is cent % capable to provide 29 KBps steady via IDM (obviously using cedar) +/- 1.5 KBps.
Also der is a traditional temporary solution to bust slower speeds..
i.e just disconnect & connect several times until ders some improvement in download speeds :)
It would have been awesome if Cedar had edge class 32 !!! never mind its not that big difference anyways but would have been better.
