Re: Thoughts on Nexus 4? (no word of an LTE model yet)

LG had some good non-smartphones. When they got into the smartphone market, that success didn't translate over very well (IMHO). Now the Nexus 4 doesn't appear to be a bad phone except for the lack of 4G LTE and storage. I'll tell you this, if they kept the price the way it is now, added LTE and 64GB storage, they wouldn't be able to keep them on the shelves.
If they added LTE and got a 64gb version then they wouldn't be able to keep the price it is now. It'd eventually fall to that price but not for a release of course and not for awhile.
