Yes, I'm doing it on my Nexus 4, check this thread:

Another guy is doing it on an Optimus G, he did it first as far as I can tell:

That's incorrect. Android phones can use multiple wireless signals at once (wifi, cell, mobile data, bluetooth, nfc). And they can have multiple network interfaces up at the same time just like any linux box can. It just happens that the network manager turns of mobile data when you turn on wifi, but that's on purpose (to save you battery/cost), and not because the phone isn't capable of it.

Not sure why you say with such authority there's no way around it. If you don't know the answer to something for sure, better don't give a wrong answer.

There's even an app on the play store that can loadbalance a download over wifi and mobile data at the same time:

I say this from past experience that the WiFi antenna could not get a signal at the same time as the data antenna.

Now while this may have changed. I will look into it myself before I pay much heed to it as anything more then smoke and mirrors.

Welcome to the future, I guess...

But this has been around for awhile (though not as advanced, obviously...)

But as far as being able to use both separately at the same time would probably be a pain to implement in many phones.
