    The droid will definitely not work with 4G. That is completely hardware dependent.

    did some searching and turns out we're both wrong. lte is a different technology in itself. its backwards compatible with gsm and cdma but lte is neither.

    Even with this LTE network comming out I dont see a reason to "Skip" getting the X. I mean sure LTE is the next best thing, but... It prob wont be available in your area.

    If it will be then I guess ok Skip the X.

    Personally I prob wont get an LTE device until 2011-2012 or until they have my area covered.

    I was reading somewhere earlier that they would be starting with east and west coast.. question is, how much of each, we probably won't be able to know where until after x is released anyways.

    I have a friend that works for Verizon in the Atlanta area. Atlanta is one of the roll-out cities.....dancedroid but I don't know that 10 seconds faster upload download makes that much difference for me.

    Where are you guys finding all the rollout cities? I'm curious when Cincinnati will be getting it.
