    Excited about iPhone 5

    I noticed that the phone has a universal lte radio that will work on Verizon, sprint, and a dozen cell companies around the world which have lte networks.

    I think this is a sign that universal world android phones might, in the future, support gsm, hspa+, and lte.

    You'd hope. Now that Samsung and HTC are suing Apple for unlicensed use of lte technology......of course the cost of all these legal games get rolled over to the consumer.....

    Well, although many have made it sound that way, that's not entirely true - Apple iPhone 5 to be available in separate GSM and CDMA versions

    With the iPhone 4S, every model sold had the same hardware radios inside. For instance, a 4S sold on AT&T has exactly the same hardware radios as a 4S sold on Verizon or in Asia. The software differences are what enabled various radios to be used for various networks and locations and blocked for others. With the iPhone 5, there will actually be different models that have different radios. So, unlike the 4S, there's not one version of the iPhone 5 that has the hardware radios for everything.
    Current lineup: Galaxy S5, iPhone 5S, Note 10.1 (2014)

    Cellular and Wireless
    • GSM model A1428*: UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz); GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz); LTE (Bands 4 and 17)

    • CDMA model A1429*: CDMA EV-DO Rev. A and Rev. B (800, 1900, 2100 MHz); UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz); GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz); LTE (Bands 1, 3, 5, 13, 25)

    • GSM model A1429*: UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz); GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz); LTE (Bands 1, 3, 5)
    Different models with different hardware radios. There's no iPhone 5 with universal support, but the CDMA version seems to come the closest.

    There's supposed to be 5 new nexus devices announced this year. The nexus 7 tablet, and 4 more.


    Maybe Google will jail break the iPhone 5, put jelly beans on it, and make it the next nexus.?

    What if Google makes a deal with Sprint to ota jelly beans to all the iPhones ?

    you are excited about a phone that launched today ?

    its got the same hardware specs as it predecessor except for dislay, radios, and processor .... and since 2007 the basic layout hasnt changed much.

    so your excited about a piece of hardware thats advanced the least in the last 5 years when compared to the competition ... ? the iphone has nothing on a 10 month old device like the gnex .... and iOS changes its underwear once a year vs. android's 2-3 times a year.

    pretty stupid if you ask me ....

    edit:
    it doesnt even have a new display it's just longer in one direction with the same pixel density as its predecessor ....

    posted via android ....

    Apple usually doesn't announce the clock speed, at least not up front. They like to toss out things like "two times faster" rather than give specifics (probably because they're trying to avoid the inevitable comparisons to other devices based purely on numbers, a comparison the iPhone is likely to appear as the loser in). Chances are we'll have to wait until someone can test it before we know the exact clock speed.
