When will we see an LTE iPhone 4G? 2011 or sooner?
iPhonAsia comment: LongTerm Evolution (LTE) 4G technology in a new iPhone could mean insanely fast speeds … as high as 150Mbps download and upload speeds as high as 50Mbps … about 100x more bandwidth (much faster) than most 3G networks. LTE networks are not that far off … as soon as 2010 in Europe. With a little help from Nortel and others, China Mobile plans to have their own “indigenously innovated” TDD-LTE 4G network by 2011.
Somewhere in the recesses of Apple’s Cupertino campus Apple engineers are hard at work on next generation iPhone models. It’s a safe bet that a future iPhone 4G will support the Long Term Evolution (LTE) protocol.
The laptop will soon fit into your pocket. Apple will be at the cutting edge of smartphone/pocket computers and 4G LTE will provide the necessary speed.
Carriers committed to 4G LTE: T-Mobile, China Mobile, NTT DoCoMo, Verizon. and AT&T. NOTE: AT&T Mobility has stated that they intend on upgrading to LTE as their 4G technology, but will introduce HSUPA and HSPA+ as bridge standards. AT&T will save its LTE trials until 2010 .
