    Well, that doesn't mean it's going to be soon. Everything I've read indicates it will start in the first quarter of 2011 and complete sometime around 2014.


    Don't get too excited. ;)

    will this be available on phones we already have? In other words, can they upgrade the 3G to 4G OTA?

    Haha.. If its anything like the 2.2 update, certainly 2014 would be a longshot.

    I am almost positive for 4G to work on a device it would take a hardware upgrade, not a software one-

    No, the phone has to have it built in. No phone available has 4G as of now. Though apparently in a Best Buy ad, the droid x is shown having 4G an possibly becoming activated when 4G is released.

    The droid x does not support 4G... I am sure it was a typo of some sorts.

    Yeah, it even had htc sense in the picture. Major typo..

    eh, no problem. at work I connect wifi to our network and the same at home.. When I use 3G, it doesnt seem slow at all anyways so I cant say I am disappointed with it.

    Anyone hear any reviews about 4G from sprint users?

    I think Sprints 4G and Verizon's 4G are going to be on two different levels
