AT&T Activates One Million iPhone 4S Devices

The iPhone 4S has been a tremendous success for all three of the US carriers that currently sell the handset. But it seems that AT&T is getting a little more success compared to Apple's other two iPhone 4S partners.

AT&T today announced that it has activated more than one million iPhone 4S devices as of Tuesday, making the iPhone 4S launch the most successful launch in the carrier's history... 

Apple and AT&T Working Together to Get “4G” Indicator in iPhone 4S Status Bar

What is 4G? Other than the fact that it's the wireless standard that comes after 3G, I'm not sure that a lot of people outside of the ITU (International Telecommunications Union) know the answer. It's supposed to be a lot faster, right?

For months, both AT&T and T-Mobile have been taking advantage of this grey area surrounding the marketing buzz term, touting their HSPA+ networks as "4G." Now it appears that Apple is going to be hopping on the bandwagon...

Full iPhone 4S Specs Revealed: A5 Processor, Download Speeds That Rival 4G, World Phone, 8MP Camera, 1080P Video

Wow, if anyone was doubting that the iPhone 4S could compete with the latest and greatest crop of smartphones, would you like your crow served scrambled, or over easy?

The specs are ridiculous, and the "S" wholeheartedly lives up to its name by bringing significantly more speed, to the already capable iPhone 4.

On top of the obvious A5 processing speed increase, the 4S actually rivals 4G speeds when it comes to downloads. Not only that, but it features CDMA and GSM capabilities for true world phone functionality...

Will the Next iPhone Have 4G on AT&T Only?

Despite launching on Verizon just this February, one analyst believes Apple could be about to ditch the carrier for a second time and launch its next iPhone with 4G compatibility on AT&T only.

Todd Rethemeier, an analyst at Hudson Square Research, has ignored recent speculation that claims the fifth-generation iPhone will be called the 'iPhone 4S' and will skip 4G wireless support, and claims in his report the next device will instead be called the 'iPhone 5', boasting 4G compatibility and leaving Verizon behind...

Analyst Says Next iPhone Won’t Be 4G

The notion of the next gen iPhone being a "4G" device has been debated for quite some time. Originally, it was thought to be a possibility that the next iPhone could bring 4G/LTE data speeds, but then Apple made a statement during its last earning's call that 4G would "force a lot of design compromises" that the company "was not willing to make."

A recent update to AT&T's marketing strategy changed the requirements for a device to be labeled "4G," and it was thought that the next iPhone would fall under these requirements. Now, another analyst from BMO Capital is stating that Apple won't release on iPhone with 4G speeds until at least 2012.

Apple Will Call the Next iPhone “4S?”

We've heard iPhone 5, 4G, 4GS, and 4S as possible names for Apple's next gen iPhone. Recently, select develepors started receiving iPhone '4S' prototypes for testing purposes. There's even been some leaked images of what is an alleged iPhone 4S with a slightly larger screen than the iPhone 4.

Following other hints that the next iPhone will be called the "4S," an industry analyst from Jefferies has reported that Apple will indeed call the device the iPhone 4S.

Will the Next iPhone Be Called ‘4G’?

Will Apple call the next gen iPhone the 4G? Most have been calling the unannounced device the iPhone 5, but recent reports speculate that Apple could end up calling it the 4s (like the 3GS).

AT&T has changed its 4G nomenclature to include devices that previously weren't fast enough to be considered "4G." In AT&T's latest series of marketing campaigns, they have started to call slower devices "4G." The devices that are referenced by AT&T posses the same speeds as what is expected from the next iPhone.

Verizon CEO Says Apple LTE Products Coming Soon

Following Verizon Wireless CEO, Dan Mead's remarks regarding the short lines on Verizon's iPhone 4 launch day, Mead also indicated that Apple will eventually offer mobile products that can use Verizon's Long Term Evolution (LTE) 4G network.

This lines up perfectly with the speculation earlier this month that Apple was working on an LTE iPhone...
