Wikipedia's definition of 4G wireless standards:
3GPP is currently standardizing LTE Advanced as future 4G standard. A first set of 3GPP requirements on LTE Advanced has been approved in June 2008. The working groups are currently evaluating various proposals for standardization. LTE Advanced will be standardized as part of the Release 10 of the 3GPP specification.
7, 24 May 2009is there any fone which use 4g??
No, as 4G isn't finished yet, commercially. It will, however, be awailibe by the end of this year in Stockholm and Olso, but a worldwide release will take up to 2 years.
Just don't listen to the WiMAX-fanboys. WiMAX is a successor to WiFi, while LTE is a successor to 3G. So calling WiMAX 4G is like calling WiFi 3G.
Sorry, but there's only one thing in this world that is 4G, and that is LTE.
arak, 24 May 2009actually the bands are divided to more segments
2G - normal calling
2.5G - GPRS
... more4G is LTE, not WiMAX. WiMAX is like HD-DVD, a failed format that'll lose and fade away.
Too bad Ericsson and others only support LTE. WiMAX is already considered as a lost format.
Sorry, but study more before you post.
actually the bands are divided to more segments
2G - normal calling
2.5G - GPRS
3G - video calling
3.5G - HSDPA ,HSUPA
3.75 - HSPA+ (its the same as above but higher speed0
4G - Wi max ,
Anonymous, 24 May 2009i respect your work very much bro...thanks for your informations about idou... if you are rea... moreIt was mstL that he mentioned as the copy-paste guy, not you, ndra, dont be misunderstood.
Chris, 24 May 2009@ SE Inside : why don't you add 3g bands available in more frequencies ? UMTS 900 is great but... moreit seems u do not understand what bands, tech (2G & 3G means) this is 3.5G(HSPA+) device and with required US 3G bands.
Chris, 24 May 2009@ SE Inside : why don't you add 3g bands available in more frequencies ? UMTS 900 is great but... morebands are operator dependent and they get those bands from spectrum alloted by govt, its not in hands of any mobile phone manufacturer. by default US has got 850, 1900 and 1700 bands for UMTS and 850,900,1800 & 1900 for GSM+EDGE. chill man
only SE can help SE now cos, 3.5mm jack,usb port and cheaper m2 or the use of t-flash in their models wil turn their fortunes around if nt,its bye,bye to SE.
@ SE Inside : why don't you add 3g bands available in more frequencies ? UMTS 900 is great but I am in the US and those frequencies are not available here (900 & 2100).
Our carriers use 850, 1900.
This is one of the reasons nobody buys SE in the US.
Make an effort and you will gain a lot of new markets.
I am a big SE fan, but because of this I will have to buy something else.
Too bad I really love this device but 3G compatible is the minimum.
Idou will not be launched this year or ever. I tell you this because I believe this post must be rejected by the administrators.
If this thing has no TV-Out, no thanks..
what i need:
Good Video recording, dont care about resolution,(nokia's Resolution is enough) but it must have HQ.
IF ever, i also want some slow mo/fast mo campture (just like omniaHD)
TV-Out, i really need a TV-Out.
And a lot 3rd party apps, Iphone/WInMo are great because they have so many 3rd party apps. i hope s60 v5 apps will work here.
Inside Stylus, not an eye liner!
