    if it has same bands and frequencies, why would it get any different speeds?

    I do not doubt it, but I have to believe that 16/32 is the sweet spot. The 8/16 to me is a PR thing. "Let's put out a dirt cheap Nexus, undercut the iPhone and see what floats"

    The bad part is eventually it may backfire when people realize that 8/16 is inadequate...

    Not sure about the "advertise the crap out of it" part... I haven't really seen any marketing for it. No TV commercials and little to no in-store advertising. Hell, Best Buy employees hadn't even heard of it when I went in to fix an activation issue.

    Exaggerated my bad the deal was that vzw would do the advertising and take the cost

Even the HTC Incredible LTE has an SD slot. The only phones on Verizon that lack the SD are the iPhone and the DNA.
    And while Verizon definitely would profit from higher data usage for those w/out unlimited, all of their software 'enhancements' have been pushing people towards using wifi whenever possible - annoyingly so. Plus they are the only carrier to use the WP8 Datasense feature. It seems to me that they are actually discouraging data usage. They are almost complete in their LTE buildout, and it seems that they'd rather just milk the increased cash-flow from lower capital spending rather than go through another big round of buildouts.
    Because Verizon asked HTC to build the phone and told them what features to include?
