To those anticipating the 4G iPhone
That will be all.
Gah, you're confusing me!
There's a "4", and a "G". This means it will be a "4G" phone! And isn't that really what matters?
If the iPhone 4G is really just a fourth Generation iPhone launched in 2010, then:
2009 == iPhone 3G
2008 == iPhone 2G
2007 == iPhone 1G
but I thought it went...
2007 == iPhone 2G
2008 == iPhone 3G
2009 == iPhone 3G S
Or where did I go wrong in my math?
Anyhow, Apple will never brand it as the 4G anyway. That's just internet hype. They will call it the iPhone HD or something most likely.
ALL PRODUCTS have new generations that beat their last one they made.
Playstation, Xbox, Nintendo, APPLE! just to name a few. I have the Ipod 3G-as in the NEWEST ipod they created, doesn't mean my Ipod has 3G coverage!
1) iPhone... thru 2012 (if original contract holds)
2) Old people, basic phones. Fast data? What's that sunny? HUH?
3) families that are more than happy with $10 data on mid-range phones (4 phones with $10 data... is alot better than 4 phones with $30 data.) Don't need speed on an Impression or a Neon.
I don't doubt they will lose customers... but I think they are safe where they are at, atleast for a short time.
LTE isn't even finalized as a spec yet... WiMax is just getting started. It'll take a few years for either to have a footprint large enough to scare AT&T.
Whatever happened to when people would actually post valuable information on this site - anymore its completely ridiculous items like this and flame wars. Phonescoop has officially become the "highscool" of cell phone forums.
Couldn't agree more. I rarely come here anymore, there is so much misinformation it makes me sick. If you want quality information it's all about howardforumms, BGR, or crackberry forums.
iphone 2g was the first
iphone 3g was the 2nd
then iphone 3gs was the 3rd.
the next one wil lbe the 4th installment in the series but the name iphone 4g isnt what has been actually stated it will be called. people are using that name to describe. if u want it to have 4g then you will have to wait till when att rolls out theier 4g network which they state wone be till about 21011(maybe) and by then some other carriers may have but that last part is opinion
Its really only a big deal to those of us that care what the correct word or phrase is. Obviously most customers do not fall in that category.
I get so worn out by repetitive iphone crap, that I'm just letting it go now to their face, but inside I'm like "you ruhtard, its the fourth version call it the 4th iphone"
Second, the iPhone 4S for ATT is HSPA+, which by the new definition is a 4G phone. The phone does not say 4G on the screen because Apple is waiting for an LTE version so that it does not have to have totally different software for ATT versus the CDMA carriers.
Third, as of January 5, 2012, ATT has opened up LTE to 26 markets covering oveer 74 million consumers. I have an LTE phone, live in anLTE market and it is VERY fast in comparison to 3g. And if the phone is not in anLTE market, it falls back to HSPA+ which is up to 3 times f...
