OMG LTE

As expected, the new iPhone for the first time supports LTE cellular connectivity, for Verizon and AT&T, and Sprint's now-sprouting network. Apple waited for a single-chip, single-radio implementation (expected to be from Qualcomm, its traditional cellular supplier), to minimize components and costs, and optimize battery efficiency. Theoretical peak throughput for LTE is 100Mbps. You can still connect to 3G, which you'll have to do for voice anyway, with iPhone's support for a range of 3G standards.
