SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 2, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday evening, everyone. The afternoon brought us a number of interesting stories, including brand new shots of what appears to be the long-rumored iPad Mini. Speaking of devices with the word "Mini" in their name, some are thinking that Samsung will announce the Galaxy S III Mini next week after German press invitations suggested something along those lines. iOS 6 adoption has hit 60% of Apple's user base, and we found out today that Motorola has dropped its ITC lawsuit against Apple, but we don't why just yet.

EE: Our LTE-complaining rivals made the wrong decisions

Under fire from rivals unhappy at it taking the lead, UK 4G network EE has shot back with suggestions that Vodafone and O2 could have been LTE competitive had they planned ahead properly. Speaking at a pre-launch benchmarking session, EE director of network services and device development Tom Bennett dismissed complaints by the carrier's competitors as being selective with the facts, arguing instead that lack of investment is to blame for their being behind.

UK 4G carrier EE has been flaunting its speeds again, and we couldn't resist stopping by to see how the iPhone 5 and other handsets perform on the new LTE network.

EE puts LTE phones up for sale (sort of): Galaxy Note II LTE incoming

New 4G carrier EE has thrown three of its LTE smartphones up for purchase today, and confirmed the Galaxy Note II LTE is also incoming, though you can't actually use the high-speed data connection yet. The HTC One XL, Samsung Galaxy S III, and Huawei Ascend P1 LTE are all available from today through Orange and T-Mobile UK, though for the moment users will only see 3G data speeds.

The 4G migraine: iPhone 5 highlights scrappy LTE

The 4G migraine: iPhone 5 highlights scrappy LTE

Patchy coverage; fragmented frequencies; tight-lipped and cautious carriers: the iPhone 5's LTE may be one of the headline features, but it's also causing the most confusion. As predicted, Apple threw in support for LTE networks across the globe in the new smartphone, though it was forced to use three different versions to do so. Even those three may not be enough to satisfy everyone, however: there are some significant holes for high-profile carriers.

iPhone 5 LTE support for EE 4G reportedly a done-deal

iPhone 5 LTE connectivity is looking increasingly likely, hours ahead of the much-anticipated smartphone's official debut, with claims of confirmation that the Apple device will run on new 4G network EE.

Tomorrow's the big day, folks. Apple is set to hold an event tomorrow, and all signs are pointing to the reveal of the iPhone 5. Ahead of the event, however, came plenty of iPhone 5 news and rumors today.

EE's 4G LTE network is already live, and so we grabbed some hands-on time to see just how quickly the new breed of 4G handsets set to hit the UK can run. The numbers - on what's an unstressed network, it's worth remembering - are certainly impressive, with download rates in excess of 34Mbps and uploads of over 22Mbps at times.
