Sprint unveiled the first 4G phone for the United States with the HTC EVO 4G powered by Android 2.1. The HTC EVO 4G will come to the Sprint WiMAX network this Summer.
Verizon Wireless is also working on their 4G Network and rumors are circulating since last year that an iPhone 4G is coming to the 4G Verizon Wireless Network.

Verizon Wireless 4G network is based on LTE Technology (Long Term Evolution). The speeds are similar to WiMAX with 10x that of 3G. Verizon Wireless expects to commercially launch its 4G LTE network in up to 30 markets in 2010, covering 100 million people.

Apple is not necessarily known to be first to adopt new network technology. Remember that the iPhone launched without 3G, despite 3G basically being already pretty standard in 2007. On the other hand the market has changed. Android and Windows 7 Mobile are putting pressure on Apple to keep on innovating and stay ahead with the iPhone. The Google versus Apple feud should also push Apple to stay ahead of Android and adopt 4G.

Possibly we see two new iPhones in 2010, one for Verizon with 4G LTE and one for AT&T. Both would offer new features (current predictions). More iPhone 4G Rumors.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
