This morning we are hearing some news down the pipeline that Blackberry has already put together a team to begin planning devices that will work on the upcoming LTE networks.
Long-term Evolution, also known as 4G technology, will probably be debuting on most major carriers sometime around 2011 or 2012. The LTE-capable phones should be able to achieve download speeds at over 4 times the top theoretical speed of 3.5G networks.
This is some pretty interesting news to us, considering how late Blackberry showed up to the 3G party, but we love to eat up this kind of news anyhow. This means Blackberry intends to be one of the first out of the gates, which certainly is a great idea.
The mere concept of a Blackberry downloading at speeds in excess of 100 Mbps is enough to make us tech lovers drool. So, Blackberry, put the pedal to the metal! We can’t wait to see what you have in mind for the next revolution in cell phone technology.
