Thats funny, I was talking to an AT&T regional sales manager the other day at lunch. I showed him the Inspire I had bought 2 hours before meeting him. I told him that they were offering an awesome phone for a good price and I think their customers will appreciate the value. He told me the "Inspire" story about how it's basically a Desire HD for the USA. He said that people love the Desire in Europe and why not bring the same phone to the US, especially considering the low costs of manufacturing a duplicate phone. He talked about the 4G strategy they are following. The HSPA+ backhaul thing is critical to their 4G LTE plan. They will have both going at the same time with HSPA+ covering places that LTE isnt. He said that Verizon customers will go from 12 Mbps to 900 kbps when the LTE signal isn't working. AT&T customers will go from 12 Mbps to 5-6 Mbps - a much more acceptible change. Anyway - I told him to HURRY UP!!!
