AT&T planning 4G rollout for 2011

Kris Rinne, AT&T’s senior vice president of architecture and planning, said the company hopes to have its Long Term Evolution (LTE) fourth-generation network available by 2011. AT&T had previously said it stay with current HSPA technology for as long as possible, but Rinne, speaking at the Mobile World Congress, said the company is currently looking for LTE vendors. It plans LTE trials in 2010, and hopes to have services commercially available by mid-2011. Verizon is already conducting limited trials of LTE technology.

2011? Sounds like 2009 will be the year for original iPhone buyers to upgrade, then again in 2011. Perhaps the iPhone will have a 2 year design cycle with annual refreshes.
