Talk about an acronym.

UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Node Long Term Evolution - that is 'Super 3G' or '4G' to the rest of us.

Its an interesting and complex evolution. Supposedly this will encompass wide area cellular and wireless broadband networks, mobile TV, PAN using UWB, Bluetooth and ZigBee with everything IP enabled for seamless mobile hand over.

Wow it just doesn't get any easier.

Yes, LTE seems to be the next big thing after HSDPA. Lots of research firms sending out press releases with their "findings" about the upcoming market for this...

And no doubt like every evolution path for GSM so far the actual product will not match the hype! :-)

The interesting thing will be the implimentation of UMA - the mobile providers seem to think that UMA will kill WiFi and WiMax however it would seem that if WiMax does take off because of the better data rates that GSM/3GSM fails to deliver then at least it will give the mobile carriers a backup plan!

I agree WiMAX is good back up plan. I guess the seamless handover is to cover all bases. You have to wonder though whether issues around tuneable antennas and radios will become to complex. Also you have to wonder what impact 100MIP processors and 4GB storage will have on your battery life.
