And Apple is slow to adopt technology. I think the iPhone will land soon at Verizon, but I do not expect it to be 3GPP LTE (what they are calling "4G" right now on Verizon's network) compliant. Wait a generation and wait for the standard to stabilize (3GPP LTE is not fully compliant to the standards requirements yet...expected compliant roll-out is 2012) before you can expect Apple to follow suit.
Exactly. They walk to thier own tune and never rush to be first just to be first on anything.
