    Well value wise yes it is better than the OG droid. I would trade to sell the iphone for more money and get a better android phone. If I was forced to stick with one or the other I would take my OG droid any day because of the fact that I absolutely hate Iphone OS.

    I wouldn't say iphone sucks. I wanted it to come to verizon for a long time, but when the OG Droid came, I couldn't care less about the iphone. Now I'm to entrenched into the google ecosystem to even consider it.

    For me it's GSII with LTE over Bionic. If not, I gotta wait to find the Bionic at a discounted price. $300 is too much.:icon_eek:

    LTE is a MUST for me . An LTE compatible GSII would entice me more with an unlocked bootloader.

    That was one of my biggest questions as well.

    But...:Galaxy Tab 10.1 for Verizon, hands-on with the new 4G speed king -- Engadget
    Sammy seemed to do alright with this device. I wonder if this could be telling enough to pre-judge the SGSII's 4G efficacy.

    It is much easier to fit an LTE modem in a tablet.

    Why exactly is it easier? It's nearly the same thickness as a normal smart phone.

    Because it's much wider/longer. The radios themselves aren't huge, but in a 4" device there is only so much space, so additional radios may have to be stacked. In a 10" tablet, they don't have to be stacked.

    Exactly. Not to mention, I doubt they use the same size chip for a tablet when they can space it out more due to the option of being able to do that.

    Also placement, orientation and proximity to other components and the interaction of the electromagnetic fields surrounding the components and their effect on operation of components and antennas.

    Very good points.

    The bottom line is that eventually there will be Qualcomm chipsets with the LTE radio built into the SoC, saving some space. But the first generation LTE radios are separate and are bigger, just like in any other silicon/chip technology... they will get smaller over time.
