Smartphone Revolution is here !!
Most road warriors armed with smartphones and iPads, want to use wi-fi while traveling But they complain about lack of availability of ubiquitous wi-fi availability at the same time !
This is huge and will create a new revolution of Internet of Things. If they get it right and sample on schedule, this could be as big as their first innovation (“The 4004”)
Surprising stat considering that the price of mobile voice has consistently declined over the last few years.

Jinxed my femto cell by proclaiming openly in the 3GPP meeting that I have been running it without problems for 2 years. GPS light is green, Network light is green , then why is the 3G light flashing red ? !!!

And AT&T has no clue why ! I tried turning off LTE .. But that did not help .. Anybody else facing this issue ?
Because of Single Radio limitations, iPhone 5 can only support CDMA or LTE at any given time. When the phone is on LTE and a voice call is made, the phone will fallback to CDMA (3G) network which by design does not support simultaneous voice and data.
However, Samsung’s Galaxy S3 can do this on Verizon’s LTE network. How ? because it uses dual simultaneous radios .. GS3 uses CDMA for voice and LTE for data.
I am surprised Samsung has not made a commercial yet to exploit this weakness of iPhone 5.
