4G - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Here's a good one that shows T-Mobile's "4G" (actually 3G) network beating out Sprint's 4G WIMAX network.
Documented 4G phones slower than 3G phones on AT&T's network.

I think the new phone is gonna be called iPhone 4G, i think its gonna be the same thing they did with the 3G and the 3GS, no cosmetic changes just the inside, iPhone 5 wont come until next year with a bigger screen.

The iPad 2 should have been 4g
I wish I had a miniature elephant that fit in the palm of my hand. I would pick him up and he'd lift up his trunk and stand on his back legs and say PRRRRRRRRRRRRMMMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPPHHHHHHHH and I would say yes little elephant i love you too.

But if you put a 4G radio in the new iPhone, even if it is backwards compatible with 3G networks, tech people will be excited and know it will be spotty coverage. Average people will get really excited and not realize that they will not actually be getting 4G speeds and will be upset and frustrated with Apple that their product didn't work like it was supposed to, and Apple will lose those people

In short, that is bull. Apple is known for it's innovation, but rolling out an iPhone on this new "4G" that isn't even fully rolled out yet isn't innovation. It's being ridiculous. Come on Apple! Get it straight! If you want money, don't put in 4G! Put in what really matters! (Cloud Storage)

maybe they are going to wait and release a gsm and cdma iphone5 at the same time? i mean if i was on verizon and just bought a ip4, it would kind of piss me off that there is a new gsm version and not one for cdma. i just hope it wont take until summer of 2012, my at&t contract is up in Oct....(fingers crossed)

I'm still standing by prediction that the iPhone 5 will be in stores between June 19-29.

be glad they didn't. The battery would have sucked more and would have been slow. Just like the 3G.
I got an iPhone 4 so I guess I am waiting until iPhone 6 with 5G or what ever is out by then.

iPhone 4 is fast enough for now. There's no need to get iPhone 5 until AT&T is ready with its LTE technology.
On the side note: I also think this was one of Apple strategy to launch CDMA iPhone 4 early this year. Apple has already planned to postpone iPhone 5 this summer. Why making changes on the iPhone 4 if the wireless carriers are not even ready yet to provide a faster network?
So glad I ditched my 3G last year for iPhone 4 and not waiting for the white model.

This move wouldn't make any sense, why break the refresh cycle in order to add a feature that only America will be able to use, and even that will be limited use till 2013. The bidding or LTE network availability hasn't even begun yet in the UK.
In my opinion it will be better to wait till next year when the feature can be used to greater effect.
Hell do we even need to be up to date with all the technology?? We've had worse cameras and no flash for ages now yet we still prefer it over android and other competing OS'. what's one year without a feature that can only be utilised by a small percent of the Market?
