Upcoming Competitors – Nokia N8 and HTC Scorpion

The Nokia N8 is coming soon.

The upcoming Nokia N8 is the first smartphone in the world to provide 5-band 3G support so that you can connect to 3G data networks on T-Mobile and AT&T in the USA, along with 3G networks around the world. This is truly the first world phone and has some very compelling specifications that best anything currently available.

Specifications include 5-band 3G data support, anodized aluminum casing in five colors, 3.5 inch 640×360 pixels resolution OLED display, 720p video recording capability, 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, internal 16GB memory with support for microSD expansion cards, HDMI port, USB , FM transmitter, 680 MHz processor, and USB On-the-Go so you can plug in USB devices to use them without a PC

There is a rumored HTC Scorpion phone coming to Verizons 4G network and it should have a 1.5 Ghz Snapdragon processor.

Real World Network Speed Comparison

Verizon 4G connection on a populated network should average between 5Mbps to 12Mbps in download rates and between 2Mbps to 5Mbps for uploads. Actual, achievable peak speeds in these areas float between 40-50Mbps downstream and 20-25Mbps upstream.
So in the realworld the 4G LTE is about 2 to 4 times faster than 3G+ or Wimax and 10 to 20 times faster than 3G.
