    LTE tech is ready.  LTE data plans should cost the same as 3G.  Just let it fly already.  Bring it on.  Let’s see how great true 4G really is.

    Seems that at tomorrow iPad event, Apple will uncover a new Apple TV. I would like it to have Siri and a mike in the remote used to talk to Siri. That would be the basic remote. Plus any iPod touch, iPhone or iPad could act as a remote.

    LTE tech is ready: ok.. but not many of the providers are ready…in Europe the 3G coverage is still not on a decent level… so what’s the big deal about LTE anyway….

    Just sold our two iPad-1-32-wifi’s on eBay for $350 each ‘buy-it-now’.  Excited and ready to purchase two new ones.

    The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it. The process by which banks create money is so simple the mind is repelled.

    Remind me of “next iPhone will be iPhone 4S not iPhone 5”.  Just a name.  Having said that, marketing LOL knows names affect our purchase decision.

    It is precisely because LTE is not too important for this iPad that it will be in it. Apple doesn’t want to deploy iPhone 5 without previous substantial real world testing of the LTE hardware and software, and of the networks purporting to offer LTE service. This keeps iPhone 5 under wraps until it’s ready for high volume shipment, while minimising the risks.

    I suspect the relevance of the name is that both the iPad HD and the rumoured new Apple TV will be full HD (1080P) compatible. This may also involve new WiFi with higher bandwidth. Full HD is the last technical barrier to delivery of any and all HD content via Apple servers and Apple TV.

    So, it’s about iPhone 5 and finally replacing broadcast TV. I think.

    Annoyed. Halfway through a preorder and the store went back offline. Oh well, at least I’m not being shot at in a rainstorm at night. smile

    Just finish to listen to the event.

    2 things

    Netflix

    What do you make of the fact that you can use your iTunes account to rent netflix now. Trial run for the future NFC iPhone?

    TC slip. At the beginning of the event when TC was speaking about the Apple Store at one point he was mentioning that the store where the best place to experience the post pc devices such as iPhone iPad and… then hesitate and said an other post pc devices….Could it be that he almost said something he should,T?
