It is a mystery to me how a new technology like 4G LTE is more fragmented around the globe than 3G was. Why do humans always make the same mistakes. According to a new report on the Wall Street Journal , that confirms that Apple will put 4G LTE in the iPhone 5, IDC says that there are 36 LTE bands compared to 22 3G bands world-wide.
The iPhone 5 is though supposed to be more global than the iPad 3 4G LTE is. The iPad 3 4G LTE is a failure in Europe and triggered a marketing mess as it does not support the European 4G networks. The iPhone 5 is though supposed to work also on 4G LTE networks in Europe.
I think it will be even take a while after the iPhone 5 announcement on September 12 to find out if the iPhone 5 will support 4G LTE in your country.
