Mobile phone carrier AT&T has just announced that it plans on offering users the possibility to enjoy HSUPA capabilities on two of the latest handsets the company brought to its network, the Motorola ATRIX 4G and the Samsung Inspire 4G.
In all fairness, only the ATRIX 4G is available for purchase at the wireless carrier, but the Samsung Infuse 4G should not be too far behind either.
When released the Motorola ATRIX 4G landed without HSUPA support on the carrier's 4G HSPA+ network
, although AT&T has advertised it as being capable of offering a great such experience.
When users started to complain about the lack of HSUPA support on ATRIX 4G, AT&T said that it is testing the feature, and that it would be released in the not too far future.
Now, the carrier commits to having the update delivered to users next month, at least this is what it stated in a recent post on Facebook (via
“We’re excited to announce that both the ATRIX 4G
and Inspire 4G are expected to receive software updates in April. In addition, one of AT&T’s next leading Android devices, the Samsung Infuse 4G, will ship with HSUPA already enabled,” AT&T states.
“With these software updates, and our continued roll-out of expanded backhaul, our 4G devices will continue to get faster.”
“Please keep in mind that software is only one of many factors that can affect speeds experienced. Factors such as location, time of day, network capacity and facilities, can have an impact as well,” the wireless carrier continued.
For those out of the loop, we should note that Motorola already made the ATRIX available for purchase in other markets as well, including Canada, where it arrived on the airwaves of Bell.
The same as the AT&T flavor, Bell's ATRIX
comes without HSUPA on board but, since the US carrier is readying the release of this update for its device, chances are the Canadian version would receive the same update too next month.
