iPhone 4G LTE tipped for 2012

It's through Daniel Shen of DigiTimes that this information is passed from Taiwan amongst additional information showing global acceptance of 4G LTE technology to be growing to a smartphone population of 45-50 million units inside 2012.

The mandatory upgrade is due to the fact that AT&T will be spending over $8 billion to convert T-Mobile's entire network of 3G towers to 4G, rendering T-Mobile customers 3G phones obsolete sooner or later.

Apple iPhone HD Prototype’s Sealed Affidavit Now Available to the Public

Possibly the largest story to break this year, or many years before this in fact, has snowballed into what many would consider a ridiculous scenario that's unnecessary, for both sides of the fight.

The torrid affair of the iPhone HD's life in the public sector, well before launch, is obviously not going to slow down, and even though we brought these latest images to you earlier today (with an update that they could, indeed, be fake), it seems that it may be laid to rest.
