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.
