No, EVDO and RTT1X are the data modulations that the PPC6700 can do, which the 
Sprint network supports.  The Sprint option plan for data is called 
PowerVision, and includes unlimited internet to the phone ... pretty sweet, and 
for only a few dollars a month over the phone service.  With PowerVision I 
don't think you're supposed to use it tethered to your PC ... they sell 
separate packages for EVDO PCMCIA cards.  But with the original installed 
Windows Mobile (don't download the sprint provided OS update) I can run dial-up 
network thru the phone via USB cable or bluetooth.  However, I find the PPC6700 
big display & slide-out keyboard sufficient for daily use.

Thanks to you David for the clue that there was a windows mobile version of 
Slingbox player.  Didn't know that.  Loaded it up and it's great!

  Sounds like that may be the way to go.

  >almost everything through cell EVDO - X1 data

  Is that a Sprint plan option? Or through another carrier's service?
