    Any upcoming Android phones to keep an eye on that I can take advantage of the 4G option with?

    The HTC Evo 4G on Sprint already uses 4g. Don't know what is in the future.

    Whoah... back up... "4G SIM card"?!?

    Unless there's a working LTE network in revenue service somewhere, I don't think there IS such a thing as a "4G SIM card" available today. Unless I missed it in the spec sheet, Sprint's 4G phones are every bit as permanently hardwired to a single IMEI as every other phone they've ever sold. Unless Legacy Clearwire equipment had SIM(-like?) cards of their own, perhaps?

    Good point, I missed the "SIM Card" part.

    From what I've read about the HTC EVO 4G, it has no way to insert a SIM card, and although it IS a 4G device it does not work on GSM networks (International).

    Engadget posted some photos on the Verizon LTE 4G Sim cards. They will be going into broadband and pre-paid MIFI modems. Phones don't have them yet but the SIMS are definitely coming very soon. October time-frame from what I gather.
