iPhone 5 to support 21Mb/s HSPA+ not LTE

Chinese telco outs handset's data spec

Mobile application security vulnerability report

A China Unicom executive has let slip that the iPhone 5 - or, at least, the 2011 edition of the Apple handset - will support HSPA+ 3G technology with download speeds of up to 21Mb/s.

That would seem to scupper the hopes of fanboys hoping their next handset will support LTE '4G' technology.

At the Macworld Asia show, the Chinese telco's representative flashed up a slide showing the evolution of the iPhone as a data device. Said foil shows the speed, though the fellow hasn't included a snap of the handset.

Japanese-language site PCWatch was on hand to take a snap of the slide:
