Samsung showed 4G in action

    At a technology conference in South Korea, Samsung demonstrated a working prototype of a device for transmitting a 100 Mbps data stream to a receiver moving at a speed of 60 km / h. According to eyewitnesses, the receiver was about the size of a refrigerator.

    Samsung engineers claim that their device is capable of transmitting the same data stream even if the speed of the receiver is increased to 120 km / h, and the signal will not be lost even when the receiver is moved from one cell to another. With the claimed characteristics, this technology may well qualify for the title of fourth-generation cellular communication system (4G). It remains only to reduce the receiver to the size of a mobile phone - and you can release the technology on the market. According to Samsung plans, the first 4G terminals will go on sale in 2008, and the first mobile devices in 2010.
