I wanted to know if there are android tablets that support Powertel/Africom modem. What should I be looking for in terms of specifications? And does Powertel support WCDMA ? Is WCDMA different from CDMA?

CDMA is a cellular system which was employed for
2G and now for 3G network.WCDMA is the
physical layer technology adopted for 3G UMTS system. The difference between CDMA and WCDMA
in term of physical layer spreading is that in CDMA
system signal is spread upto 1.25 MHz while in WCDMA signal is
spread upto 5MHz band. As for android supporting Powertel or Africom modems i haven't yet heard of it.. Good luck

If you have someone in USA they can buy one locked to Verizon , then unlock it and ship to Zim. It will work with both Powertel and Africom
