    LTE is the best thing since sliced bread. I doubt you'll find anyone to argue that point. Latency on an LTE network is generally low, while speeds on an LTE network are typically fast. Pretty much the only problem with LTE is its "newness", which translates into the service not being available as widely as many of us would like. When I abandoned Windows Mobile for Android, I picked up the T-Mobile G1 -- the very first commercially available Android-powered smartphone. I was about a year late joining the Android party. Why?

Cupertino likes to keep the user experience as uniform as ...
