Everyone knows that iPhone is a notorious data hog -- prior to its debut in 2007, handsets had such a poor user interface that few people actually bothered to use them for anything but phone calls. Now, one of the makers of competing Blackberry devices says the iPhone will be a "prophet of a bandwidth-challenged future."
Super-stardom isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, as Apple has discovered with its immensely popular iPhone since it debuted in 2007. If it’s not the target of ill-gotten patent lawsuits, it’s taking heat for just about everything else. Now, a New York Times article is suggesting that the device is responsible for all of AT&T’s problems as well.
Earlier this week, at the IDF conference, Intel unveiled their revolutionary Light Peak optical connector, which promised a 10Gbps data throughput. In comparison, the maximum speed of USB 3.0, the successor to what we know as the the standard for data transfer, is 4.8Gpbs.
That the iPhone uses more bandwidth should seem obvious to most iPhone users; we
chose this phone because it makes Internet connectivity so easy. The real question is, how is, which of your most-used apps are responsible for the clogging of AT&T's network.
