LTE Downloads Cute Animal Pictures at 170Mbps While Driving 65KPH

The next thing in fast mobile internet is the 4G standard LTE. While we've seen an LTE demo before, it wasn't quite as ridiculous as the LTE demo T-Mobile and Nortel just wrapped up: While driving 67kph on a highway in Bonn, Germany, they were able to hit download speeds 170Mbps and upload at 50Mbps. We'll have to wait a while though: AT&T and Verizon will start their trials in 2010, and commercial deployment won't happen til at least 2012. Of course, there's always WiMax. [Reuters]
