    In b4 someone says the iPhone already supports N.

    I think we will see it in iOS 5

    It has N, but only supports 2.4Ghz, not the 5Ghz.

    I don't think any mobile phones support the 5GHz band with 802.11n.

    It requires another radio, and that makes the phone bigger and more expensive.

    What is the difference end users would see if they did support 5GHz. ?

    I'm not a network expert, but I think there's some advantage to getting all your devices on the same 'n' network using the same frequency. Otherwise you're dragging down the speed of the network. (I think.)

    I'm pretty sure Apple's solution is to use the new Airport which can create both an 'n' and a 'g' network and you can assign the proper devices to the proper networks in order to keep your 'n' as fast as possible.

    ***There are probably a few errors in this post. This is how I understand it, though.
