Want Internet Faster than 3g. Try LTE

The next great leap forward in wireless broadband networks, a superfast technology called Long Term Evolution(lte), is being hailed as a breakthrough that will transform the world’s mobile into the lubricative gatekeepers of the on-the-go internet.

Benefits

1. Fast internet( about 50 times faster than 3g technology)

LET shall provide speeds upto 200-300mb/sec speed.

2. Downloading becomes easier thus helps to develop the

What we Dont Like?

1. Huge capital investment- About 1.8$billion is the estimated cost to develop this network in Europe.

2.Possibility of Failure- 3G technology failed for over 10 years till apple released its iphone in 2007. This can be the case even with LTE.

3.With already 20mb/sec speed with the HSPA+ technology it is not sure whether this technology will be able to develop something substantial.

Conclusion

If you are a internet addict and a downloading freak this technology will surely change your life.

So hope for the best.

VoIP over 3G available; iCall cashes in

Great news for all iPhone carriers. You can now make and receive VoIP calls over 3G on the iPhone (and iPad?!) according to the latest release by iCall. The SDK terms were updated by Apple to allow VoIP calls over 3G even though some operators, like T-Mobile in Germany, don’t allow VoIP calls on their network. iCall, with push notifications, is surely the one which finally makes VoIP a classy member of the iPhone.

iCall allows you to make and receive phone calls over 3G and WiFi.

Iphone 4g

Iphone 4g

Iphone 2g, 3g ,3gs and now its time for the all new apple iphone 4g.

Apple has never disappointed us with its unique and brilliant design and supremacy and excellence in quality. Hopefully it will live upto its expectations with the new iphone 4g.

An OLED display, 5-megapixel camera and a release date between May and July appear to be the most likely rumors (and we agree that those all sound like very distinct possibilities). Also ranking high are rumors of a front-facing camera, dual-core processor with more RAM and a touch-sensitive case.

The 16GB and 32GB storage is priced at $199 and $299 respectively.
