    I dont see the point of having 4G on any current smartphone today. Even the Snapdragon 1ghz CPU is still the absolute main bottle neck on 3G when rendering webpages on the phone. 4G will not increase web browsing speeds on the phone.

    So you can't think of any other uses for bandwidth except for page rendering times?

    Are you new to the internet or computers in general?

    Any proof of this? Or more random BS you just throw against a wall and see what sticks?

    4g will load faster than 3g what are you talking about... wifi loads faster than 3g so 4g will too... there are other featurs for 4g as well, such as HQ video streaming as mentioned above... you really don't know too much about bandwidth do you? oh well it's okay your forgiven

    Are you attempting to argue that all other things being equal, a WiMAX capable device with a Snapdragon 1ghz CPU is inferior to say, a WiMAX capable laptop with a faster and heftier CPU, and as such cannot take full advantage of WiMAX's bandwidth potential?

    I find this silly, because in any computer/device setup, you'll always have a bottleneck somewhere preventing you from realizing your fullest potential. Improve your bandwidth capabilities, and your RAM becomes your bottleneck. Throw more RAM at the problem and then your system bus becomes the bottleneck. Improve that, then something else becomes your new bottleneck. Once you throw the theoretical best, state-of-the-art hardware together, you still have bottlenecks - software and external infrastructure.

    So... what's your point?


    EDIT: Hmm, nevermind... seems 5th Element just earned him/herself a banning???

    5thElement is taking a three day vacation to Banlandia to cool off and come back with a better attitude.
