WSJ: No 4G support for new iPhone

Any new iPhone models announced by Apple this afternoon will not feature true fourth-generation cellular data support, according to a new report. Citing people familiar with Apple’s plans, the Wall Street Journal reports that the newest iPhone will feature neither LTE nor WiMax support, and will instead focus on 3G network support, including HSPA+, which has been touted by some carriers as “4G” technology. Notably, a report appeared yesterday claiming that Apple’s deal with Sprint would include a brief exclusive on a WiMax-enabled iPhone 5, which would appear on AT&T and Verizon in 2012 boasting LTE support.
