iPhone Video Chat could be helped by AT&T HSPA 7.2

AT&T plans to expand to a quicker wireless network later this year, known as HSPA 7.2, which if the new iPhone supports video chat could well enrich that experience for iPhoners according to computerworld.

A spokeswoman for AT&T would not comment on whether the new iPhone would support HSPA 7.2 but did say that multiple 7.2 compatible laptops cards and smartphones will be coming this year.

Analysts believe that AT&T’s HSPA 7.2 is part of a general trend to support smartphone traffic of all types and doesn’t necessarily make room for video chat, and some analyst’s believe that even if the new iPhone did have video chat it wouldn’t be used much.
