There’s some good news for those of you rocking the AT&T Inspire 4G: it looks like AT&T has received FCC certification for the Android-powered device to get HSUPA for super-fast uploads. Look for this as a software update in the not-too-distant future.
According to an FCC letter received by Engadget, the AT&T Inspire 4G will get a software update directly from HTC to enable this. The move comes as there have been some questions about whether AT&T is capping some upload speeds for non-iPhone devices.
There’s no word on when the AT&T Inspire 4G will get HSUPA from HTC but it should come in handy for those of you who like to use that 8-megapixel camera to record and upload videos because it offers faster upload speeds than are currently available. While many of the next-generation mobile data networks will market its download speeds, upload speeds can also be important for those who are creating content and uploading on the go.
Even without the HSUPA software update, the AT&T Inspire 4G is still a solid Android smartphone. It rocks a 4.3-inch display, WiFi (and HSPA) connectivity, 8-megapixel camera with HD video recording capability, 1 GHz processor, GPS, Bluetooth, 4GB of built-in storage that’s further expandable with microSD memory cards. HTC’s very own Sense UI is running on top of Android.
