It looks like HSCDSD is a service your provider will have to offer. If I am understanding correctly, most providers either choose HSCDSD or EDGE and usually choose EDGE because it is cheaper to maintain.
I also noticed in the OP that it states the 8900 will have a mini-usb port, I believe it will actually be a micro-usb port from all the reviews, images and information I have seen on the 8900.

Isn't the camera supposed to be 3.2 Megapixels and not 3.15? I WANT ANSWERS AND A GOOD CAMERA!!!!With the Curve 8900 upon us, happiness has pierced through my sadness and given me new hope.
HSCSD is good@#!
HSCSD (High-Speed Circuit-Switched Data) is essentially a new high speed implementation of GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) data transfer. Four times faster than GSM, with a transfer rate of up to 57.6Kbps, it achieves this speed by allocating up to eight time slots to an individual user. This speed makes it comparable to many fixed-line telecommunications networks and will allow users to access the Internet and other datacom services via a GSM network.
HSCSD operates across a GSM network, and therefore no extra hardware is required by a mobile communications operator to offer the service, just a network software upgrade. In a GSM network single slots are allocated to each user, which has a standard data transfer rate of 9.6Kbps, although some networks are now being upgraded to 14.4Kbps, an increase of 50%. In HSCSD, users are allocated multiple slots so that the transmission speed can be drastically increased, with some service providers offering rates of up to 57.6Kbps. This enables internet access at the same speed of many dial-up modem services across fixed line networks.

Did anyone notice a number for Device Memory for the 8900? I did not and I am hoping that RIM, given the different CPU, will have endowed this phone with large amounts of it.
Does anyone have a number in Mb (even better Gb) please?

The remaining question is: How much memory does 4.6.1.xxx need? The more options, extra features, graphical whizzbangs and user changable parameters they put in, the bigger the OS gets. Read the Bold forum for some tales of horror with OS 4.6.0.xxx and depleted memory.
