It wouldn’t be the “Mobile” World Congress if we didn’t see some driving and web activities, right? Don’t worry, no humans were harmed in the making of this film. Similar to the WiMAX van ride I experienced in Baltimore, Motorola is offering an LTE demonstration in Barcelona. Riders can watch high-definition video streaming over an LTE network that Motorola (s MOT) set up in just two short weeks. [Where do I get one of these vans?]
During one of the network hand-offs, I see no noticeable drop in the content, which is impressive. The Motorola tour also offers web-access through the LTE network over WiFi: There’s a clip of someone using what looks to be an ARCHOS Mobile Internet Tablet on the LTE through WiFi. Nice! If the LTE demo wasn’t so temporary, I’d consider brushing up on my Spanish and moving to Barcelona. Alas, once MWC is over, LTE’s lights go out. Looks like I’ll be staying here until late this year or early next.
