Samsung claims to have cracked 4G

Samsung is claiming to have cracked 4G, while most of the mobile industry couldn't tell you what it is yet.

The electronics giant says it will demonstrate the high-speed technology at the Samsung 4G Forum in Jeju Island in South Korea. Using a specially adapted bus, the company is promising wireless speeds of100Mbps (megabits per second). It also says it will demonstrate a handover between cells at up to 60 kilometers per hour.

Fixed speeds for technology will be even greater, getting up to 1Gbps (gigabits per second)--that is, 50 times faster than the current next-generation hype generator, mobile WiMax. Samsung will showcase the bandwidth-bloated technology by using it to download 32 high-definition broadcast TV channels, as well as maintaining internet access and video telephony, simultaneously.

Samsung expects 4G to get its official launch in 2010.
