Well, I really hope that I'll be on board soon. I did however promise my upgrade to a family member, who might decide to use it. If so, then I'll honor that and give it to them... and wait on the nexus. But, if my upgrade is far enough out, maybe the next nexus ...? If I would have been a bit more decisive making up my mind with the g3 vs. GNex ... I might have JB right now
I'll still be popping in from time to time regardless..
Good to know that you can't lose lte. And I guess that makes sense, from my understanding wimax wasn't a cell phone technology as much as it was a beefed up wifi (still 802 standard I believe) - and lte is a cell tech.... I *think*
Ha, I'm trying to talk my wife into using the OG and then me take my upgrade, then we can stagger upgrades every year and I can just pass my old phone onto her. Don't think she's going to go for it though!
Definitely good to know that LTE cannot be lost. Maybe it's too early to tell since hardly anyone can use it, but is LTE the battery hog that Wimax was? I thought I had remember reading that the newer stuff is all on the same radio, and the thing that made Wimax so bad on the OG was that it was a completely separate radio....might tie into the wifi/cell comment above.
