    So the LTE version is strictly CDMA? What the hell Google? Not that I'm buying one anyway...

    Need a way to develop with Eclipse on this baby. All that gorgeous screen space in a small form factor.

    The LTE version is strictly LTE. It probably just runs on Verizon's 700 MHz spectrum for LTE.

    Nice device and specs. Just a bit too pricey for what Chrome OS is capable of currently.

    Beautiful touchscreen...Yes...I would have to go with 128GB MacBook Air and just install either Chromium OS or Linux. Then go out and spend the extra $100 on dinner. Then I would get USB 3.0 as well.

    That 1TB of Cloud Storage for 3 years ain't gonna sell me.

    I think the typical customer for this will also own an 84" 4K Flat Screen... They both have about equal content to stare at. Also they both should take off once the porn industry films in 4K...
