South Korea: 4G prospects September 1, 2006

Posted by Jasper in Technology.

{From Associated Press]: Samsung Electronics Co. showed off the promise of future mobile technology Thursday. It is using so-called fourth-generation, or 4G, wireless technology.  The current prototype technology allows data transfers of 100 megabits per second and works while moving at up to 120 kph. But the promise is still far off: Right now, Samsung’s data receiver is the size of a compact refrigerator. It won’t be until 2008 that the device can be shrunk down to fit in a mobile phone handset and even then, frequencies need to be allocated and standards set, meaning the devices aren’t expected to be commercially availbale until after 2010.
