Whether you believe these claims or not, the fact that the 802.11ac spec will be a big improvement over 802.11n is a given.

Broadcom‘s BCM 4335 chipset includes 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and FM radio, as an all-in-one chip. Broadcom says that this chip is in “full sample mode” right now, and we won’t get to see it in devices until early 2013. So I wouldn’t get my hopes high about buying a phone with [...]
