4g sure sounds nice and if I lived anywhere near the freakin towers of 4g then possibly I would be typing this totally different but I don't so i don't really care about 4g.
*ahem* that is untill I visit my family up north and get to partake of the spiritually blessed , blazing fast 4g in northern cali.
I'm in southern cali and just having 4g in L.A alone is not going to cut it.
Check the Wimax/4G thread for upcoming 4G launches and if any are near you.
Just cause it lists one general city ie: like in my case Philadelphia, although I live about 15 miles from Center city, my area is blanketed in 4G coverage.
Actually going by Sprints map, im covered in most areas I go. So take a look, you might be surprised at where the coverage actually is.
I answered, no, but I wouldn't say it wasn't a "big deal" for me deciding to get the EVO. I've always been attached to getting phones that have a physical QWERTY keyboard. This is going to be my first fully touchscreen phone AND first android phone. Based on all the stats and considering my Touch Pro has been driving me nuts, I decided to take a chance on it. It being the first US 4G phone and 1st Android 4G phone was more of a bonus. I may want to go back to having a phoen with a physical QWERTY, but hopefully the EVO will deliver beyond my expectations.
