Next iPhone to Have Worldwide LTE Support

The next-generation iPhone will support LTE 4G in multiple countries around the world, reports the Wall Street Journal. Citing sources familiar with Apple's plans, the Journal said that the iPhone will work on the LTE 4G networks of operators in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, though the Journal's sources didn't specify which network operators. The next iPhone will not support LTE across all bands in all countries, which is impractical from an engineering perspective (36 different spectrum bands are in use around the world for LTE). In the U.S., the two largest LTE networks, currently run by AT&T and Verizon Wireless, operate in the 700MHz band. Sprint is deploying LTE in the 1900MHz band, while T-Mobile will deploy LTE in the 1700MHz band. The Journal also reported that the next iPhone will have a "slightly larger screen." Apple has scheduled a press conference on September 12, where it is expected to reveal the new smartphone.

I laugh at everyone that are willing to spend outlandish amounts of $$$ for already way overpriced products.
Are we going with or without contracts?
With contract..they are competitively priced amongst everyone...
Hell, they barely cost more at full retail..I guess you are laughing at all cell phone makers in general.

GSIII 16GB is $549.99
iPhone 4S 16...
Apple has a cycle and price cuts do not come for the current iPhone until the new iPhone gets announced/released thats just the apple way and has been for awhile now.

It also depends if your talking contract or out of contract pricing to. Persona...

It need to be a radical re-think from the ground up...

For Apple to have any chance of regaining its mojo the next iPhone needs to be the most radical re-design of the entire concept of a smartphone since the original iPhone 5 years ago.....

They can't be satisfied with these minor, incremental changes any more...a longer battery life, a faster processor, a slightly better camera, they need to rethink everything from the ground up...

The next iPhone needs to be as radical a change in philosophy as Windows 8 is from Windows 7.....only this will make the iPhone the 'it' device again.....

If they make yet another minor update....Android wins and iOS loses...
600,000 + .
That's the amount of applications Apple has.

That's the amount of revenue their ecosystem has generated.

On average, that's the amount of hard resets I've do on my "daily driver" Android hanset a month. (An H...

I have to admit,

with as little interest I have in owning an iPhone and as much of a Google/Android fanboy as I am, it's still exciting to see the new iPhone. The visual design is always intriguing and it's impossible to deny their influence over the rest of the industry.

And the new iPad to be as big as ever

It will come with the most recent update called "gynormous shard of glass." It doubles as a picture window.

How Do They "Get Away With It"?

Apple's marketing is like the waiter who stands at the table, never puts your order into the kitchen as to what you want but sits there and teases you with just how GREAT your dinner is going to be.

Apple's delivery on the other hand has all the excitement of Christmas morning until you realize your parents simply took your old toys, re wrapped them, and presented them to you as "NEW".

If the "leaked" videos and the developer specs are accurate, then I feel like a chump for waiting when I could of gone out and purchased a GSIII two months ago! Oh, that's right, Apple is trying to ban the GSIII!

Thank you, Apple for eliminating my choices as a consumer, and investing in costly litigation instead of product development.

How about ...
I've never understood the Cult of Apple either....surely 15,20, 25 years ago part of the appeal of Apple was that very few people used it, so you got to feel like you belonged to a special elite club....but these days, everyone and his brother uses Ap...
