March the availability of the first commercial LTE capableCDMA/4G handset, although it wont deployed yet to the consumers until the be second half of this year.
No details of its specs nor any images have been provided by Samsung during its announcement at CTIA Wireless 2010 in Las Vegas.The only thing we know as of now is that it will fork on the LTE technology rather than on the Wimax being run by Spint on its HTC EVO and that it will be released late in the summer
The Samsung SCH-r900 will be the first LTE-enabled multi mode, CDMA,4G handset in America. Its introduction is part of Samsung's collaboration with Metro PCs in the US.
