iPhone Lags with 4G While Sprint Moves Ahead with HTC EVO 4G

You are probably aware that during CTIA 2010, Sprint unveiled the first 4G smartphone, the Sprint HTC EVO 4G, which was formally known to all as the HTC Supersonic, and will run on the Clearwire WiMAX network. But were does that announcement leave the iPhone and AT&T asks iphone gamer blog.

Well AT&T are still working on filling the gaps in their 3G network so it is unlikely we’ll see an AT&T 4G network anytime soon and probably in a year or two, which means if the iPhone continues to remain with AT&T as its exclusive carrier we won’t see the “iPhone 4G” for a couple of years.

However, if 4G is so much faster than 3G and with the likes of Verizon Wireless rolling out 4G networks and Sprint with their WiMAX and the HTC EVO 4G, can Apple afford to wait to come to 4G?

If Apple continues to stay with AT&T then the iPhone will be seriously behind in the 4G stakes and if that happens then the iPhone may no longer hold the title of king of smartphones which is even more reason to push out the much talked about Verizon iPhone and possibly a Verizon iPhone 4G; what do you think?

    I believe that no smart phone out there to date has all the bells and whistle’s that an avid user wants in a phone. In my opinion, having had AT&T service which sucked in terms of coverage, is a bad choice for Apple to keep exclusivity on. Right now I carry a Sprint Pre, and a Verizon Droid, both of which I’m happy with, although Sprint 3G seems to be faster than VZ 3G. So I wouldn’t mind if the iPhone came to either carrier, hopefully Verizon so I can buy the Evo when it comes out and have the iPhone as my work phone.

    It is interesting that the first 4G phone is out but Verizon and ATT will not have 4G phones out until thier network is established which should be right around mid 2011. I think that you will notice a lot more 4G devices next year, and unfortunately if you travel overseas WIMAX counts for nothing because countries on the other side of the pond do not use that technology.
