    The "HDMI TV Out" feature is an interesting addition. I wonder if this capability will become a standard option on the latest multimedia capable phones.

    Hopefully, the evolution to end-to-end 4G all IP-based wireless networks will enable high-definition video streaming to mobile devices -- like the the Mondi.

    The demand for data intensive applications requires both the radio bandwidth and the backhaul network to be able to support those applications. 4G is the great enabler, is this regard.
