    been a droid user for some time now, but want to know more about the TB, especially the LTE tech it uses.

    is the version of hardware in the TB backwards compatible and able to support 3G/GPRS/2G SIM cards ? supposing the radio bands are not software locked, in theory would an LTE device that uses a SIM card be able to also use legagy GSM networks ?

    regarding the TB and battery, what's the overall verdict when running stock with the stock battery ? are we looking at charging this device daily ? or are we looking at charging it more than once a day (moderate usage/voice/data) ?

    there is another technology called LTE Advanced that focuses on true 4G throughput, if the current LTE system used by verizon cannot use GSM SIMs as well, perhaps LTE Advanced will ....
