Verizon Launching 4G LTE at CTIA!

So, today will be a big day for Verizon, who will be launching 4G LTE right here at CTIA around 11:30AM.  From what we know so far, Verizon will probably launch 4G LTE in 30 cities by end of 2010 and hopefully nationwide by late next year.

I had the pleasure of attending Verizon’s private party last night (thanks again to folks at Verizon and great hospitality by Don at B Bars and Restaurant in SF) and actually got to talk to an insider at CDMA development group, who manages the standards of CDMA technology and 3G.

I won’t mention his name but the guy ad CDMA deve

Sprint’s HTC Evo 4G dubbed “superphone” by many because of its 4G WiMax capabilities and abilities to download HD content right onto your phone (plus you can use it as a 4G WiFi hotspot device) is officially coming to everyone in the U.S. on June 4th 2010.

I will actually show up an hour before my local store opens and try to grab one of the very first HTC Evo 4G superphones.

Plus, monthly fees for the phone itself will be at $69.99 plus $10 a month

iPhone Killer is Here – HTC Evo!

Sprint, HTC, and Google has teamed up to bring you the “ultimate” iPhone Killer.  I have written a post when Palm Pre came out that it was an iPhone Killer but let me correct that, HTC Evo is the new iPhone Killer!

Probably, we have not seen a better smartphone in our lifetime.  While Apple is stuck with an outdated AT&T network for another decade, HTC will be bypassing with lightening speeds on Sprint’s 4G WiMax network while Google keeps improvin

Clearwire 4G WiMax Hack – How to Get Better 4G Signals using Tinfoil!



For those of you lucky enough to get ClearWire’s 4G internet service, you might still have trouble getting full signal if you happened to live in suburban neighborhoods.

But I guess there’s a pretty cheap fix for that, you can actually increase your signal a LOT by using a tinfoil and making an antenna sorta like above.   I used to use this method actually for my wifi router couple years back, I think it works for 4G modems probably because they are wireless.  Cool.

Lo and behold, as soon as I put that tinfoil dish behind our modem, the signal jumped

video://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVmymb1PXbc

Probably the most exciting technology of this year will be WiMax rolling out in the U.S.  Many cities in the U.S. already have launched WiMax in full service including Las Vegas.  At CES 2010, I got to test WiMax hands-on at the Motorola booth, using one of their latest 4G WiMax USB dongles.

In the simple test, I was able to get a 2Mbps download and 3.36Mbps upload.  This might not seem like very fast but at CES 2010, broadband speeds and even wired internet was simply horrible because people all over the world (who use a

WiMax/WiBro Routers Available in South Korea!

While Sprint is still trying to get WiMax up and running in America by year 2010, (that’s the year it should be available in every city in the US, according to a Sprint rep I talked to last week) South Koreans have been enjoying it for the last couple years and now they have a WiBro router that instantly turns any location into a WiFi hotspot with fast upload/download speeds than you can imagine.

Of course, you can pick one up in South Korea (and use it in South Korea only) but I c

Nokia N810 WiMAX Edition Out!

Nokia N810 WiMAX rolls out, it’s a tablet PC/Oversized PDA/UMPC that is the very first WiMAX-enabled device you can buy today.  It looks like the industry has been keeping WiMAX on the down-low, meaning they were ALL making WiMAX devices probably at least a year before. (mostly for Asian countries who’ve had WiMAX for last 2 years now)

Now, everyone who ever knew complained WiMAX will suck can just shut up, thank you
