PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless A recent Retrevo Gadgetology survey suggests that users are unclear on what exactly 4G means, don't know whether their current mobile service is 4G or not, and even if they do know, are unsure of the benefit. It also seems that mobile device owners' loyalty to their chosen platform is more important to them than higher network speeds.

Love WiMAX

I get looks of jealousy when I connect to Clear after my flight gets canceled -- way faster than airport WiFi, and no data plan needed. Just $10 for a one-day pass, a great way to make sitting at the airport productive.

WiMAX covers 90% of Japan's population, and South Korea is nearly there. Great for my frequent travels there.

It's technically not 4G, but is vastly superior to buying a data plan from a cellphone carrier where I live and in each country I visit.
