AT&T 4G update

Much hay has been made about AT&T's calling the HTC Inspire and Motorola Atrix "4G" phones despite the fact that they shipped without actually being "4g"-enabled, and rightfully so. We brought you instructions a month or so ago about how to hack your way to HSUPA (upload) speeds on the Inspire, but it's a bit of work.

And now comes word through the FCC and from AT&T itself that points to an upgrade in the works. First, there's a filing at the FCC that actually gives it governmental permission to flip the HSPUA switch on the phones. And then there's a response on Facebook that says the two phones will be getting updates (presumably for HSUPA) in April. It also goes on to say that the Samsung Infuse (4G) will ship with HSUPA enabled.

So put down the pitchforks, folks, and put away your petitions. The Atrix and Inspire are about to get AT&T's "4G." [FCC, Facebook via Wireless Goodness, Droid Matters]
