There has been some outrage in the Android community this week about how their ’4G’ phones can’t upload data as fast as a 3G iPhone 4. (welcome to AT&T Android!). Even the ‘King of Android Phones’, the Atrix, gets schooled by the iPhone. Word on the street is that AT&T hasn’t enabled the higher speed HSDPA+ radios on the Androids but since Apple controls the iPhone firmware, AT&T can’t mess with it. That sounds like the AT&T we know and love.
At the moment, 3G iPhone still beats 4G Android.
