Apple’s next-gen HSPA+ iPhone will be world’s smartest smartphone

“Apple will talk about its iPhone next Tuesday during a special event at its Cupertino headquarters, so I’ve gathered all the most recent additional claims for the device in this post,” Jonny Evans reports for Computerworld. “Expect the fifth-generation to be faster, sleeker and better-connected than before, though there’s still some anxious reports concerning whether an iPhone 5, an iPhone 4S, or both, will debut.”

“The most credible fresh claim this morning is that the iPhone will support HSPA+,” Evans reports. “HSPA+ offers download speeds of up to 21Mbps, up from the 7.2Mbps HSDPA/HSUPA 3G radio inside of the iPhone 4. That’s a faster mobile standard than the existing iPhone 4, but isn’t the LTE support some have been hoping for.”

“Disappointed?” Evans asks. “Don’t be. I think it is important to accept that many of the world’s largest carriers don’t yet offer LTE support, so the move to instead favor HSPA+ will make the device immediately faster and capable of being deployed on networks everywhere from the get-go.”

“The new iPhone will be the smartest thing. Those voice controls I’ve been talking about are about to radically change the way you interact with your phone,” Evans writes. “You will be able to ask your phone to find places, give you directions, take and send dictated messages, change playlists and more. This is useful for everybody, and betrays a commitment to accessibility which Google’s Android OS completely lacks.”
