Everything Everywhere -- the network merging T-Mobile and Orange -- and BT Wholesale today have been running the trial in and around St Newlyn East in Cornwall since October last year. The trial involves LTE, a technology that knocks current 3G speeds into a cocked hat. It's still only at the trial stages over here, but is becoming more common in the US, where high-end phones like the Nokia Lumia 900 are equipped with LTE. BT and Everything Everywhere reckon the trial demonstrates that a combination of fixed line and wireless connections are the future. While a nationwide fibre network connecting every home, business and farmhouse would be wonderful, BT says, "There isn't a single silver bullet to meet the rural broadband challenge. We continue to also assess other potential solutions including other mobile and wireless technologies.".
Ofcom hopes 4G will bring the web to 98 per cent of the UK population, although it's currently delayed by legal wrangling among the phone networks, We've visited the site to meet some of the Cornishfolk benefiting from decent Internet speeds for the first time -- hit play on the video to see how these seaside-dwellers are doing with a different type iphone case and popsocket set of surfing, Strictly speaking, LTE isn't actually 4G, according to the technical specifications, but as it's the next step on from 3G, the term 4G has been applied by phone networks, In marketing terms, 3.25G or something technically accurate doesn't sound exciting enough..

The blog also notes some changes on these samples compared to previous iPhone models including a 4-inch (or larger) display, and a form factor that looks unlike the current iPhone 4 and 4S with a "longer/wider" appearance. 9to5Mac also says none of these supposed samples carry a tapered, teardrop shape, a form-factor that rumors leading up to the iPhone 4S unveiling had so heartily suggested. A return to a summer release schedule would make the next iPhone the first to see a release in less than a year between models. The iPhone 4S was the first phone to get off of Apple's annual schedule, a move that resulted in record-breaking iPhone sales that were detailed in yesterday's quarterly earnings.
As for the 4-inch display iphone case and popsocket set rumor, that one has been kicking around for nearly a year, dating back to last February, It first emerged froma snapshot out of China depicting the front screen of what looked like an iPhone with a larger and wider display, Just weeks before, component industry tracker DigiTimes claimed that Apple was eyeing bigger screens, in part to better compete with Android devices, Then in March, purported "mold engineering" drawings cropped up, depicting such a device that looked like an iPhone 4 but with a noticeably larger screen, There was also a report in June from The Verge claimingit had seen device with a 3.7-inch display, complete with a mockup of said device..
Not to be outdone, a report by our own sister site CNET France in September said it heard the next iPhone would use a qHD screen that comes in 960x540pixels and measures about 4.2 to 4.3 inches diagonally. That's compared to the iPhone 4 and 4S' 3.5-inch display that runs at a higher 960x640 pixels. Finally, there were the slew of cases that hit store shelves just ahead of the iPhone 4S unveiling designed for a slightly larger, but thinner iPhone, based on what was allegedly a prototype device that leaked from a Foxconn manufacturing facility.
