Samsung 4G Wireless

Cellphone carriers in North America are still struggling to adopt 3G wireless technology, yet in Korea development of 4G is already well underway. The gap between the two regions will be made clear when Samsung demonstrates a prototype 4G wireless network at its annual 4G Forum, which begins today. A bus will drive guests around the roads near the Forum to prove that Samsung's latest 4G technology can stream data at 100Mbps in a fast-moving vehicle, allowing for multiple streaming videos even as the connection switches between cell towers. More impressive still is the 1Gbps speed Samsung claims during regular use. Attendees can watch HDTV, browse the Web, and place video calls at the same time. Adoption of 4G by carriers is not expected until 2010 at the earliest, but when the technology arrives it may well match fiber optic lines for sheer performance.
