The iFans will think the ip5 is a 5G....

Why would they think that? Do fandroids think that galaxy s2 uses 2G network because of the "2" in the name?

when the iphone 4 came out everyone thought i was 4G, same thing happened with the 4S. its almost a guarantee that someone, some day will walk into a wireless retailer and ask about the "iPhone 5G". ive heard some pretty crazy things about the next installment of the iphone.
43. serious9010 (Posts: 254; Member since: 20 Jul 2012)
Yes, that is true. SOMEONE will. But is that a good enough reason to generalize it to all iphone users and call them ifans? That is arrogant, don't you think? (I apologize if my English isn't correct)
45. thedarkside (Posts: 652; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)
i didnt generalize all iphone users as ifans, because i have an iphone. just some people choose to believe in technology that cant necessarily be utilized in hand held devices just yet.

Any guesses which carrier will be the first to mis-use the 5G nomenclature? I would nominate AT&T, based on past performance.
16. networkdood (Posts: 6330; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
T-Mobile actually was the first to misuse it...
24. -box- (Posts: 3991; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
sprint was the first to misuse it in the US with the EVO 4G in June 2010 and WiMax network, then Verizon followed suit with LTE, and AT&T and T-Mobile with HSPA+ (and LTE later). "4G" was used by Asian companies first
40. SmartPhoneStream (Posts: 162; Member since: 21 Jun 2012)
actually the first to misuse it was a Russian Carrier Called Yota with the HTC Max 4G

even though its correct info, i like how the proof for correctness was wikipedia :P
5. protozeloz (Posts: 5396; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
any guess who will build the first 5G phone? and how many will think the iPhone 5 is 5G capable
6. thedarkside (Posts: 652; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)
i had a girl tell me that the new iphone will be transparent and another kid told me that it will have a projection keyboard. i LOL'd
11. DaNTRoN (Posts: 135; Member since: 23 Jul 2012)
funny. same thing happened in my training class for work. i just dont see why ANYONE would believe an iphone would be transparent of all things. any transparent phone would suck imo, i just think if a company made on it would be a company that makes more that one phone a year.. HAHA all you get is transparent
7. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5993; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
Any guess of how long before Apple calls their iPhone 5G? How about when they release it this Fall?
41. SmartPhoneStream (Posts: 162; Member since: 21 Jun 2012)
I would Guess HTC because they built the first commercial "4G" phone in the world and the First LTE phone for Verizon
8. THEOG (Posts: 20; Member since: 12 Jul 2010)
Networks are just now building there 4g networks and some or more then 6 months old.
13. nnaatthhaannx2 (Posts: 820; Member since: 19 Oct 2011)
Some don't even have any yet.

Only if you limit 4G to LTE.
T-Mobile's 42 Meg HSPA+ is far superior than Sprint's Wimax.
17. cptbeatstix (Posts: 101; Member since: 19 Jul 2012)
Also another fact, T-Mobile's 42 HSPA+ network is beating Verizon's LTE network in 11 of 15 Major cities in data speed. Just waiting until January when the LTE Advanced is out.
37. nnaatthhaannx2 (Posts: 820; Member since: 19 Oct 2011)
Yeah but there's like 5 people with T-Mobile in each city... and 20,000+ people with VZW... so.....
19. MISTER_H (banned) (Posts: 97; Member since: 08 Jul 2012)
that is faster than ur home Wifi....
You lucky Americans!
We don't have 4G in UK....
34. smartphonemad (Posts: 42; Member since: 10 Jul 2012)
I know D: I read somewhere that O2 would try to get 4G by sharing it and Vodafones network but that was last year :/

When ever i see you'r avatar, i keep laughing...
9. darkvadervip (Posts: 365; Member since: 08 Dec 2010)
Wow this has nothing to do with apple but you all telling jokes. I guess the next google update will be call CRASH DUMMY or CARE BEAR.
12. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5993; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
Maybe Google will call it darkvadervip? Hope springs eternal, eh?
20. MISTER_H (banned) (Posts: 97; Member since: 08 Jul 2012)
Jokes as-well as bashing trashing trolling abusing it.....
23. protozeloz (Posts: 5396; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
my bad? I came with this but same happened with the 4 been considered 4G, its not apples fault their numbers go around the numbers of new data speeds so people can get confused.... so I'm asking how many will considered the i5 they have is a 5G phone sounds pretty legit
14. whothisperson (Posts: 102; Member since: 06 May 2012)
How about we just get 4g speed to run at its actual speed instead?
18. cptbeatstix (Posts: 101; Member since: 19 Jul 2012)
By the way, The "G" in all of the 2G, 3G and 4G stands for generation. The number states what generation it is. It has nothing to do with speed. Ask any engineer that works for a cellular company.
26. protozeloz (Posts: 5396; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
eh we all know that... but every generation comes with improvements among this speed is one of them GSM, EDGE, 3G, 3G+, 4G all came with certain improvements when it comes to speed
28. -box- (Posts: 3991; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
sort of. It used to indicate speed, but then it got adulterated when competition took over.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1
27. cncrim (Posts: 826; Member since: 15 Aug 2011)
With alll the speed on the planet, when will the battery technogy break through to keep up with these power hungry eater technology?
29. parkwaydr (Posts: 572; Member since: 07 Sep 2011)
almost forever would be my guess, i think all of us can agree that battery tech needs way more focused.
But thats the sad reality, general consumers want thin phones and big screens. and could care less about battery life.

It would be cool if they were to use the "Millimeter Spectrum" to produce the true definition of 4G (up to/averaging 1Gbit/s down), or a good amount slower speed of 100Mbps down. This would be great, especially since device updates & apps are getting larger & larger, and gaming system seem to be going to download content only; but the main problem would be having enough storage on the devices, excluding gaming devices. It's a bit annoying trying to download a 1GB game on my PS3 at about .75Mbps, and in fact I've never really tried (it said "estimated download time: 24 hours").

Lol i cant tell you how hard i laughed at that picture
33. script_writer (banned) (Posts: 56; Member since: 27 Jun 2012)
I know this is sorta off subject but i just wanna say that today in the UK, ofcom have revealed plans for the auction of the 4G spectrum and that services wil start rolling next year. I am proper red faced that its taking soo f***ing long to get it sorted. The UK is atleast 2 years behind the rest of the world!!! 7.2Mbps (HSPA+) is not fast enough and what with having a phone that can receive a 4G signal, i feel that not just me but the whole UK is losing out. Can somebody go tell ofcom to get off the ass and sort it the f*** out. Yeah i know im trolling but somebody had to say it
35. smartphonemad (Posts: 42; Member since: 10 Jul 2012)
I've given up onofcom... The last I heard about them was that they were not letting o2 go 4g because it would be unfair to the competition! :L
36. script_writer (banned) (Posts: 56; Member since: 27 Jun 2012)
Fair enough, as long three mobile get it (and theres no reason why they shouldnt) i'll be happy
46. alannyny (Posts: 29; Member since: 27 Jun 2012)
Leave it to a crappy university like NYU to chase down grant money and (with absolutely no ideas or sound approaches in mind) chase down the brilliant idea of making something that keeps getting faster ... even faster! Pure genius.

Brooklyn Poly is the second oldest engineering school in the US and it was a leader in engineering for other engineering schools since 1854. It was a commuter school for years. NYU Engineering merged with Brooklyn Poly in 1973. Now its more on the global scene! Do your homework before you call a school crappy.
