4G is Coming Closer

The world of 4G mobile services stepped a little closer with LG successfully testing the world’s first Long Term Evolution (LTE) cell phone chip. The integrated circuit achieved data speeds of 60Mbps. LTE networks plan to compete head-to-head with wired broadband, offering a efficiency, lowering costs, and providing for better integration with open standards. This bandwidth offers much but needs to be fed the appropriate content, applications and consumer demand.

It is easy to now envisage a full online world with cloud computing and this further marginalizes today’s download models and even DRM as we know it today.
