Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     Mobile connections are getting faster….but you ain’t seen nothing yet.     A lot of the talk at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona surrounded 5G…the successor to the 4G LTE service in many smartphones today.   Give a listen to Samsung President Tim Baxter…

“5G will be ultra fast.   We’re talking gigabit speeds, 4K movies downloaded in seconds.”

“It’s going to bring, whether it’s from the parking meters and traffic lights in making them smarter and connected…all the way up through autonomous cars.   I think as consumers we’re going to experience the fifth generation of wireless as something quite a bit different than what we’ve had with previous generations.”

Intel aims to be one of the leaders in building chips to make that happen.  You can find us at Techstination.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
