One can never predict what Apple will do. My feeling is that Apple won't go with LTE until they can do it right. As for the micro SIM's and the newer smaller SIM's that are proposed, if history is any proof point there will be shortages for the first six months.


Andy, do you think traveling in the future such as with the next generation (iPhone 5) might be more difficult based on the rumblings we've heard in the rumor mills about how Apple may use a smaller (micro) SIM akin to the iPad? Are micro SIMs just as easy to find and shop for around the world as standard GSM chips? I much prefer to pay up front for an unsubsidized smart phone that is also unlocked so I can travel around with it (instead of being caught up in the typical American "debt trap" of signing away for two years to become indebted with a two year contract all for the up-front illusion of getting the phone cheaper. How likely do you think it is (given where the world is with infrastructure) that the next generation iPhone (5) will be a world phone capable of LTE? I have a USB modem from LG that works on Verizon's LTE network here in the U.S. and for the locations where LTE is available, its phenomenal (it humanly feels about as fast as using a cable modem or DSL broadband service)! I wouldn't mind having an iPhone (5) with LTE that I could travel around the world with (that would fall back to 3G GSM where LTE is unavailable) and which I could also use to tether other machines like a local hotspot (tether with a MacBook Air or iPad)! Is an LTE iPhone world phone that can tether plausible or still a ways away? -Eddie
