for gods sake release the worlds first LTE phone before you announce the damn LTE iphone.
Announcing is different than releasing. Heck RIM stated that eventually they'll have dual core phones, but that doesn't mean they'll be released anytime soon.
You seem to have things a little mixed up. Yeah the Merge was announced for Spring, but did they say when in Spring? Yeah LTE Apple products were "announced", did they specify when?
The Thunderbolt was announced in January, it's not going to be released until March. Just because they announce something doesn't mean anything until there are dates. Why is this so hard for people to understand?
First LTE smartphone.
is it out? obviously they are on the verizon network? if its out, that means the Tbolt is not doing anything that hasnt already been done. LTE connectivity, LTE battery life, etc. If so even more of a failure for Tbolt!!!!!!!!
edizzle. you are kind of annoying and ignorant...but i give you one thing: you crack me up with these thread titles.
+1 for you
hells yeah! thanks. whats funny is i am actually the most chill un-arrogant person ever. i work in the world of commercial and residential A/V and Automation Integration. i deal with promised Crestron firmware updates, HDMI issues galore, new product releases, the fine line of deciding what to spec into jobs, making sure we aren't speccing vaporware etc. i have done this for 13 years, it is my business. i deal with frustrated clients when products dont hit on time, i deal with providing temporary equipment while we wait for new products to hit. no one understands this scenario better than i do. you guys have no clue about bugs until you sell the bugs and it effects someones ability to watch their new $50,000 media room. you think this phone thing is bad, you dont have a clue. the one thing i can count on is communication from all of my vendors and admittance of bugs and problems, it is cutting edge technology and it happens, it is a given. the problematic vendors or ones that want to play games dont get my business, it is that simple, my ass is on the line.
i am so f-ing flabergasted that VZW could be silent this whole time and not come out with a statement. i dont give a **** if they did or didnt announce the product, date, or whatever. it is THEIR PRODUCT. it is their responsibility to THEIR CUSTOMERS who will be buying THEIR PHONE to keep them informed. their are thousnds and thousands of posts on their facebook wall saying all sorts of gnarly negative stuff. all it would take is one well written statement, i would love to write it for them!
IT IS JUST THAT SIMPLE!!!!!
It's metroPCS. They have had a working LTE network since September of last year, and the Indulge is their second LTE phone. Both work really well.
