Mobile network acronym bingo: What comes next before the 4G mobile network standard is agreed?

12Jan11

What did I learn today?

HSPA+ (aka HSPA Evolved) = > HSDPA and a major step toward LTE flat architecture.

Wikipedia explains the mobile network acronym speak in tech detail: HERE

But in short:

4G has yet to be approved as a consistent mobile network standard, or set of standards.

3G has already been upgraded by several mobile networks by offering HSDPA, allowing smartphones to download large media files more quickly.

But HSPA+ (in one variant or another) will be the next big thing; eventually delivering a Long Term Evolution (LTE).

For example, this could easily deliver HD movies via your mobile phone to a screen you connect to wirelessly or via a HDMI adaptor. So you could stream HD content live/realtime onto small or large screens wherever you go.

Expect a flood of mobile phones and networks to shout about HSPA between 2011 and 2013. It’s all about the speed and data capacity for downloads on your next gen smartphone.
