A year is enough time to turn the tables
A year ago an operator R&D manager chided Apple in an interview (Swe) for not having 4G in the iPhone4S, and that Apple would fall behind in the phone wars.
I made a mental note of it.
A year on, and Apple has 4G in both iPads and iPhones.
EE is one of the few European operators who can capitalize on the iPhones by having a network ready for them .. by 30 October, so they say.
I heard a telecom vendor CTO today talking about Europe in general falling behind US/Asia in the 4G/LTE ‘race’.
Twelve months is time enough to ‘turn the tables’, at least in telecoms.
