“PC Watch “Tells That, Research vice president of China Unicom , Huan Wenliang, told iPhone five Will Support W-CDMA based high-speed Data Transfer standard HSPA Evolution “HSPA +” (21Mbps) at Keynote speech in Macworld Asia 2011.”
We have also been hearing rumor that Apple has been understaking early tests for the LTE capable test devices. We also have seen that AT&T has started to get out their HSPA and tech and even marketing devices.
Curiously, the Qualcomm Gobi MDM6600 chips found in the Verizon iPhone support HSPA+ data rates of up to 14.4 Mbps. Analysts are predicating that there will be a 4G LTE iPhone in 2012.
