    RIM prepping LTE-based 4G BlackBerry?

    Advertisement



    Research in Motion hopes to avoid its earlier mistakes in wireless technology by leaping on 4G when it becomes available, according to a tip given to BGR. The Canadian BlackBerry designer is said to have created a team specifically to build a smartphone with much faster cellular Internet access using the Long Term Evolution (LTE) standard, which tops 100Mbps and should be used by most major North American carriers.

    another excuse to switch carriers or another excuse to hold off on buying BOLD/STORM or another far off technology that people will be drooling for that is well over 5 years away in actual deployment.

    No battery issues with the 4G's, they'll be powered by cold fusion, which will have replaced all other power sources by the time they're released.

    4G? Ha. They barely got 3G working in most cities. I think they are getting a little ahead of themselves.
