Today ST-Ericsson and Ericsson said that they achieved a real-world Long Term Evolution to HSPA data call hand-off using a multi-mode device. The device was running ST-Ericsson's commercially available M710 platform, which is compliant with 3GPP Release 8 standards. Multi-mode equipment that can run both LTE and HSPA will help ease the transition from 3G to 4G wireless services, as devices will be able to access and roam between the different types of networks.

Very good news for AT&T

This is good news for AT&T since they are looking to use LTE as their 4G. That being the case it will make the transition a lot smoother. Now if they could only do that with their EDGE to 3G handoff without a dip in service they'd be golden.
T-Mobile is also migrating to LTE.
Too bad AT&T and T-Mobile don't care about 3G, what makes everybody think they'll push for 4G? I'm just saying. I'm not trying to bash, but truth is truth.

This will be like the 3G battle, Verizon will more likely be at the top for this one too...
