    Apple tells VZW and AT&T what to do, but would they tell Sammie Mobile what to do?

    Potentially interesting dynamic, because while most android users have few issues choosing from several high-end android devices, there's no alternative for many people wanting an iphone.

    Yes that is true. But Apple would not want their new phone to be infringing on any Sammy's patents. Especially ones that could give Sammy a billion dollar judgement in their favor, would they? But the real question would be risk vs reward. Cost of lawsuit vs. nobody in their right mind buying a 3g Iphone 5!

    Can you imagine the advertising for it then? "iPhone 5... LTE Enabled* *LTE to be enabled with future firmware update. Time for firmware update is unknown."

    Exactly! There is zero chance that it ships without it though. With LTE the dominant 4g standard they have no choice. Nobody will buy another 3g iphone unless they literally run around all day saying bahhh bahhhhh.

    Wasn't the majority of iPhone 4 users that thought they had a 4G device?

    Especially after the phantom 4G update. They thought Apple was so awesome they could put in an LTE radio via a software update. I had to convince quite a few otherwise.

    Every time I think of Samsung even possibly delaying or banning the iphone 5, I think of this scene, specifically at the 40 second mark.

    HSPA+ isn't 4G, but it is pretty damn fast. My S3 on AT&Ts HSPA network is pretty damn fast. I have LTE near by and the speeds are pretty comparable. I usually get 12-14Mb up and down on HSPA+ and about 16-18Mb on LTE.
