What began as a shamelessly transparent ploy by the LTE-peddling thugs of the mobile crime wars has evolved into a tale of star-crossed lovers set for the modern stage. Presenting 3G: The Killer Connection, a tale about what can happen when your choice of data carrier turns out to be wrong. Dead wrong.
The Nexus 4 is the Achilles of Android phones. It’s incredibly powerful, ready to do battle, but it has one tiny weakness that could bring the whole thing down: the lack of 4G connectivity. iFixIt discovered that the device might actually support the high-speed network after finding 4G hardware in its teardown. LG, however, wants to dash your hopes by confirming that you will never be able to use 4G on the Nexus 4. Like, ever.
A bunch of developers over on the XDA forums have been tinkering with the Nexus 4 to see if they can persuade it to play nice with LTE. Turns out that despite a lack of signal amplifier and filter it can sort of handle the high-speed connection.
Following that iFixit teardown of the Nexus 4, it looks like LG and Google did kit out their new flagship with LTE after all. There’s a Qualcomm multi-band LTE chip in there — it’s just not active. But why whack in a 4G chip and not bother to use it?
Put your breakables in a safe place and ready your best angry comments, because an investigation into mobile data caps offered this year and last year has found that we’re paying more of our hard-earned for less of their data. The worst offender isn’t who you think it is, either. Cue table flip.
Well look what Telstra just kicked out the door: a self-branded, 10.1-inch, 4G Android tablet that hits stores tomorrow. The $480 device runs Ice Cream Sandwich and is aimed at first-time tablet buyers like good old ‘tech-minded Australian families.’
