Was looking to upgrade my Desire last weekend and in talking with a sales rep about upcoming technology or phones, they heard that 4G may be coming at the end of the 1st quarter. This being said there currently is not a phone that supports 4G so I would want to wait on upgrading till a phone is available. Is there any ideas of what phones are currently being tested for 4G capability?
Not a lot of the information that I was looking for. What phones are they testing? Also, they may be coming out later in the game but at least they are advancing their technology. In our area from my experience they have the most reliable and affordable coverage from the other big name providers that I went to and still came back to US Cellular.
Just a quick note... The Aviator is NOT a Galaxy S II phone. Its not even a dual core processor. Its basically the Mesmerize (Galaxy S I) with a 4G radio in it.
The S II and the Electrify are faster better processing speed phones.
Reasons: Verizon and ATT / Sprint have larger Single band blocks of spectrum to run their LTE networks on. Because of this, they have been able to launch faster. However.. This also prevents roaming on other networks with their single band 4G radios.
Samsung has agreed to develop the worlds first chipset with a Quad Band 4G radio with US Cellular.
