Apple finally jumped on the stage and announced everything. Months of rumors and speculations have finally been revealed. Apple finally announced the iPhone 5. As... Read More that LTE (Long Term Evolution) wireless broadband technology will support the upcoming new iPhone. It was announced at the Apple media event in San Francisco. The Wall Street Journal reported recently that the advance wireless technology won’t likely work with all phone carriers in all countries, but that there’s enough carriers for Apple to add LTE support.

LTE is advanced wireless broadband technology that reportedly provides significantly faster rates for both uploading and downloading data. Carriers including Verizon Wireless, MetroPCS, and AT&T currently employ LTE, and Sprint and T-Mobile USA have plans to integrate support for LTE as well.

LTE, or what some carriers call 4G wireless, should improve the download speeds of websites, offer 10x better data download speeds for not only the iPhone 5 and other smartphones, but also for tablets, notebooks, and wireless hotspots. Some phones are already 4G LTE capable, including Motorola Droid 4, the Nokia Lumia 900, and the Samsung Galaxy S III. And the latest iPad, introduced in March, was the first Apple device to support LTE technology, said the WSJ.

Analysts say that LTE is not currently supported everywhere, but is available and being sold in limited areas in the US, as well as 11 other countries, including Japan, South Korea, Australia, and Germany. Verizon Wireless said that as of August 16, it was the first provider in the world to build and operate LTE network, making accessible to more than 75 percent of the U.S. population, in 375 markets.

    HTC has already filed a lawsuit against Apple for infringeing on it's LTE patents, and Samsung is soon to follow. Honestly, with the amount of crap Apple has pulled with it's own lawsuits, it's not that surprising. If either company wins that, you bet you'll see the 5 pulled from the shelves.
