    I'm just glad it's announced, and it's coming up quick (Feb 3rd for preorder...) Now we can all move on.

    So they've been bragging about 4g LTE....

    Yet NO release date for the 4g PHONEs....
    and a 2.10.11 release date for the iphone.... on 3g.. with no 4g at all meaning no multitasking.

    Thunderbolt it is..

    On the interwebs! Feb 3rd for already verizons feb 10th for everyone else? Something like that.

    Was that seriously the only announcement they made? Kinda disappointing... its just Steve jobs trying to steal the CES thunder after its already over hahaha 'iphone didn't win best ar CES cuz it wasn't there! DUH!' LOL I love me sometimes.... *sigh*

    4g lte is on the backburner until they get as much out of the iphone as possible...as i predicted on a thread a long long time ago...

    notice how CES is a distant memory now?

    my theory is if apple is going to make an LTE phone on VZW, theyll all drop on or around the same time, between apr-jun

    This is why I don't talk anything via Facebook Twitter. People who google for answers, clearly dont get the memo of stuff. Having a seriously tredundant conversation on Facebook with a Chick trying to explain to ME about the Verizon iphone..

    Her: I said 4G phones as in runs off LTE such as the Motorola Bionic and HTC Thunder...not the Iphone 4G love, which is CDMA and runs on the 4G network. I know my ****! I don't want the Iphone at all...I'm waiting for 2nd quarter releases.

    Me:
    Sweetheart... Angie.. Darling.. There IS no iphone 4g for Verizon. It's a 3g Device.. on the 3g Network. If you knew your ****, you would've watched the coverage.. There is no "second quater" iphone for verizon. this is the initial release.... Once again:

    11:22AM Q: Why didn't you go the LTE route?

    Tim: Two reasons -- the first gen LTW chipsets force design changes we wouldn't make. And Verizon customers told us they want the iPhone now. I can't tell you the number of times we've been asked 'when will it work on Verizon.'
