According to a new survey by Retrevo, people actually “believe” that the “4” in their iPhone 4 stands for 4G, which is the next generation wireless standard in wireless telecommunication, capable of blistering fast data downloads and uploads.
China Mobile, the state-owned Chinese phone carrier, has announced it has reached a deal to bring LTE-4G to the iPhone. While that in no way means the next iPhone, allegedly scheduled for September, will include the technology, it shows Apple is interested in developing it. The carrier has refused to elaborate or disclose when we would see an LTE-powered iPhone. That's not surprising, since Apple doesn't comment on future products and stops its partners from doing so.
