    Android is gonna remain on top y'all. Its an amazing OS and this is comin from a man who has most of his friends owning iphones and seeing that that linux system is superior. Even tho I'm like the odd ball out in my friends when it comes to phones its well worth it and I think they will eventually switch to big red and then own an android device. Just a guess but I really think android/linux will remain on top due to it always getting new technology

    LOL, luckily forum posts aren't legally binding contracts, but I'm with you... VZW didn't need this but I guess they are trying to put the last few nails into AT&Ts coffin for their cellular division.


    Really? there's nothing new about cdma radios... and you can be sure that's ALL apple did for this was change the radio to make it cdma compatible. BUT I'm sure they will release a new device with some minor upgrade in hardware within 4 months so everyone can buy it again.

    Majority of vzw customers are 3G customers and might not be able to afford to go 4G. Why would vzw put the iphone on 4G when they could keep it a cdma/3G phone and sale more than they would if they had it on 4G? I just think the iphone is gonna remain on 3G tech while android will have dual core processors (tegra processors) on a much faster up to date 4G network. Just what I'm thinking. By the way we have many loyal android users

    From what I understand, someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the 4G on the iphone simply means the 4th generation. Not a 4g network.
    And even if it was 4G network, not everyone has 4g so it has to work on 3g too.

    you're wrong. if an iphone on VZW is billed as a 4g iphone it'll be a 4g/LTE phone..

    This was from the verizon event posted on engadet




    11:22AM Dan: We have a tremendous 3G network -- we want to be sure we can take advantage of that.


    11:22AM Q: Why didn't you go the LTE route?

    Tim: Two reasons -- the first gen LTW chipsets force design changes we wouldn't make. And Verizon customers told us they want the iPhone now. I can't tell you the number of times we've been asked 'when will it work on Verizon.'


    ETA: Thank you for saying "your wrong" that was sooooooooooo nice (not). I did say correct me if I'm wrong, but I didn't say be rude about it.

    yeah i know...they announced an iphone4 today, not an iphone4g...what i'm saying is if they bill the iphone as a 4g iphone it will be because of LTE, not because of 4th generation. the point is...it hasn't happened yet. there is no iphone4g...what was announced today is the iphone4

    Yea you are correct I think. It should mean 3rd generation network and 4th generation network. Maybe it will be be able to operate on both depending on if the customer buys 3G or 4G. I guess we will see how it plays out on what Thursday? I am perfectly satisfied with my D2. Everything I want it to do it will do or I can modify it to do what I need it to. Its just a very user friendly device even though I will eventually get a 4G capable phone in the future and hopefully with a dual core. I will remain loyal to android for a while to come tho
