iPhone 5 com 4G em Portugal

Será que o iPhone vai funcionar em 4G em Portugal? penso que não. Depois de ter feito umas chamadas para o atendimento ao cliente dos três operadores nacionais as respostas foram estranhas.
Na TMN disseram que estão em conversações com a Apple e que a breve prazo irá funcionar..... o estranho da questão é que sabendo que o iPhone funciona apenas na frequência 1800Mhz e a aposta da TMN é nas frequências 800Mhz e 2100Mhz a resposta é estranha pois se eu compro um iPhone 5 limitado à frequencia de 1800Mhz como é que ira funcionar no futuro???? só se a TMN começar a montar antenas preparadas para a frequencia 1800Mhz. Na Vodafone garantiram que vai funcionar!!! como? se tem o mesmo problema da TMN. Na Optimus nada sabem......A grande questão é saber em que modos, e principalmente quando e onde,é que o 4G vai funcionar em Portugal com o iPhone. Porque, como se pode imaginar, esse é o tipo de expansão de infraestrutura que acarreta avultados investimentos por parte dos operadores; o que se acontecer será daqui a muito, mas muito tempo o que duvido.

Samsung galaxy S 3

O Galaxy S 3 foi apresentado pela Samsung como o smartphone mais avançado do mercado. Com o seu processador de quatro núcleos e ecrã de 4,8 polegadas de alta definição, o aparelho consegue bater facilmente o hardware utilizado no iPhone 4S, da Apple, o seu principal rival, e promete ser um forte concorrente para outros aparelhos com o sistema operacional Android, da Google. As novidades do aparelho não se restringem a hardware.
Câmera avançada - A câmera de 8 megapixels é uma das maiores inovações do equipamento. Ela é capaz de tirar oito fotos em sequência, escolhendo a melhor para o utilizador.
Samsung Galaxy S3
Player de vídeo dinâmico - O processador do telemóvel permite que o utilizador veja vídeos ao mesmo tempo  que realiza outras tarefas no smartphone. A janela do player fica activa, num formato menor, enquanto o proprietário do aparelho escreve mensagens ou navega na internet.
Partilha de arquivos entre dois Galaxy S 3 - O smartphone oferece um sistema interessante de partilha de arquivos. Ao aproximar dois aparelhos, o sistema operacional faz o reconhecimento dos dois e permite a transmissão de dados com velocidade muito superior à das redes Blue-Tooth.
Detecção de rostos e olhos - O aparelho possui um recurso capaz de identificar a posição dos olhos e rosto do usuário. Ele utiliza essas informações para poupar energia. Por exemplo, se você estiver a ler um livro digital no S3 e acabar por adormecer, ele identificará os seus olhos fechados e apagará o ecrã.
Ligação automática - Se você estiver a escrever uma mensagem para um contacto e decidir que prefere fazer uma ligação, basta aproximar o aparelho do ouvido para que ele marcar o número automaticamente.
