    So...an interesting look at how much the iPhone4 has hurt Verizon sales.

    Verizon's smartphone Wikileaks - Apple 2.0 - Fortune Tech

    This highlights the fact that VZW needs a high end Android touch screen device to take on the iPhone. The dual core phones might be the trick. Hopefully it won't be too late.

    Seems to be the trend with the next gen of phones.... T-Mobile and AT&T seem to be on the path to get these devices first while VZW waits.... :(

    could it have something to do with the VZW iPhone?
    Man I sure hope not!

    VZW will not be far behind ATT releasing the etna. Not to mention the Motopad has already been seen and pictured with the VZW logo. I want both.

    I hate to break it to you...but when the iPhone4 launches on VZW next month, VZW's service is going to tank worse than AT&T's did. VZW is already stretched thin with the huge demand from the ever growing Droid line. I suspect that the new demand from the iPhone will level the playing field between AT&T and VZW.

    So...with that in mind...being able to get the Olympus on AT&T won't have any negative drawbacks unless you have to have the LTE version.

    Article on Android Central raising the same question...

    This is going to be a Droid device right?? I read a while back that the AT&T Tegra 2 version will not be as good as the Verizon's Tegra 2 version. But nothing was said about verizons Motorola Etna being a droid.

    Link please.

    Asside from the LTE and Droid branding - the hardware has been rumored to be the same. For those that don't have LTE or want the LTE data pricing - the AT&T version should be the same.
