A new survey recently released online really puts a few iPhone users in the stupidity corner, sorry but it is true. The survey shows that nearly a third of iPhone 4 users think that their devices are 4G-enabled, this is funny considering Apple has not yet release an 4G LTE iPhone.
Android users are sitting there right now in screams of laughter (If your not then why not), on a serious note we love the iPhone and many Android phones but we still have to laugh at this one, sorry.
The survey, conducted by Retrevo reports that 34% of iPhone owners think that they have 4G, but do not despair iPhone 4 owners because 24% of BlackBerry users are just as mistaken as you considering RIM does not offer 4G phones either.
Android users have the choice of 4G phones such as the HTC Evo 4G or the Samsung Infuse 4G so at least you answer correctly.
So does this mean customers are confused about 4G? OEMs have been pushing out 4G marketing campaigns and releasing 4G-enabled handsets, but we must advise that even though the mobile phones are 4G-ready it does not mean they are receiving 4G data speeds, far from it.
No one is sure if Apple will release a 4G-enabled iPhone, and this is the reason why we are laughing (Once again sorry).
So when you put iPhone, BlackBerry and Android users in a corner with survey questions, it seems Android users are more knowledgeable. Android users seem to know if they have 4G or not.
On iPhone users defense, when it comes to 4G-technology it can be quite confusing, it is a subject that trips the best of us up. Apple at the moment is not going to support LTE within the next iPhone release, but will apparently support HSPA+, does this mean in technical terms the Apple smartphone technically will be a 4G handset on GSM carriers that support the HSPA+ standard.
When do you think Apple will release an iPhone with 4G-LTE technology, 2012, 2013, 2014 or even 2015?
We are asking any reader here to come forward and explain 4G in great detail, please use the commenting area below and explain to all other readers, especially those that are a little confused about the technology. Please let us know if you was one of those confused about the above, by coming forward it does not mean you are silly.
I personally work with mobile phones everyday giving the latest news, and even I do not know everything.
