    If it didn't have a keyboard, they could fit LTE in. There's barely space for the radios it has, and certainly not enough space for a janky first-gen LTE radio.

    How is there barely enough space when its the thinnest qwerty in the world I'm sure if they made it a lil thicker they could fit lte In there

    Be rational, please.

    Yes, the Droid 3 is 13 mm. But it is also split in half, so it only has a little more than HALF of that 13mm to fit in all of the components. In order for them to fit in LTE, the half that houses the keyboard would have to be, at minimum, 12 mm thick on its own in order for LTE to fit. That is NOT an acceptable compromise for this handset right now.

    But it's possible so why don't you be rational you act like its impossible but back on topic if it had lte I would probably get it but it's still a Great device

    It is not possible. Not with the generation of radios that Verizon has approved and not with the demands of this device.

    I would love for *this* phone to have LTE, but I likely would not consider the LTE Droid 3 that would have been released if they tried to release it with today's first gen LTE radios.
