3G iPhone Coming – AT&T 700mhz Band for WiMax Not WiFi

February 13th, 2008
Bill Lazorik

Over the last few days several tech blogs have been discussing the possibility that the iPhone will not be coming out with a 3G version this year or ever. This is based on two rumors. One is that Apple told Citigroup it will be releasing the 3G version in Asia and Europe this year, but did not mention the US. No mention is much different then denial. Also, we can’t forget that At&t already confirmed a 3G iPhone for this year and there are rumors of a $100 price drop which could be a move to clear out current inventory. The second rumor started when UK Macworld made the mistake of referring to WiMax as WiFi and then Macenstein picked it up and decided that we would all benefit substantially from a nationwide network of access points with a range of 300 meters. Granted there are methods to convert a normal 2.4ghz WiFi signal to 700 or 900mhz like the Ubiquiti SR9, but it requires hardware on both the access point and client side. Such a network would be completely incompatible with all current forms of WiFi including the iPhone. Now a future version of the iPhone with WiMax capability would definitely be something to see, but it won’t happen before the 3G version.
