It looks like UMTS will not give way to LTE in the future just like that. The High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) extensions which are now used in most UMTS networks today might get another upgrade in the future with HSPA+. Features such as 64QAM modulation, MIMO and Continuous Packet Connectivity (CTC) are on the horizon. Here are some documents I found recently which go a bit deeper into the topics:
- Good HSPA+ overview slide package by Dr. Anil M. Rao of AlcaLu
- Heavy technical HSPA+ background paper by Rohde & Schwarz
- My CPC intro I wrote some time ago (link to part 2 and part 3)
