    I think that even though they're not mentioning phones yet it's still a very good sign that LTE Phones are around the Corner and I believe it will be within the next 4weeks. I just don't think they'd send all this 4g LTE shit without something on the horizon . I'm guessing and this is just a guess that within 14 days of Black Friday they will release a phone and 1 or 2 broadband devices .

    I could honestly care less about 4g at this point even though my area is completely covered . I rarely am using intense web surfint or video downloading unless I'm connected to WiFi anyways and even then I don't use it much. But I do want to see some new devises why I love my Incredible , I'm ready for something new . I get bored easily

    Verizon rep told me no LTE phones in 2010 just usb sticks (of course he could be wrong but I don't think we should be holding our breath for them):

    Good stock clearing deals on Incredible now (but I'm still getting an EVO by CyberMonday unless there is a surprise definitive December date announced for IncredHD):

    I think that is what was said awhile back by someone that it would only be usb sticks(modems) for 4g first and then 4g phones would come out later on so i cant see a 4g phone coming anytime soon although i do wish they would launch either the merge or the inc hd they both look like awesome phones i dont really care whether they are 4g or not

    Here we go again! It was just under a year ago that we were drooling over pictures of the HTC Passion (Nexus 1) and dreaming of our next phone. I for one like the looks of the HD but until firm spec is released, mainly screen resolution and processor speed, I'm going to stick with the OG Incredible. This will definitely be a fun place to hang out though. :D I think we will see more than one killer phone announced/released etc... in January. I am looking forward to see what is spotted at CES, and then Mobile World Congress in February. I'm not eligible for an upgrade until April anyway.

    I finally pulled the trigger on a Incredible, I got tired of waiting for the HD :p I can always upgrade it later on and sell the Incredible.. Was going to get an EVO, but I didn't want to leave Verizon, as they have been fairly good to me these past 6+ years.

    This is the only phone I'd leave my Evo for. I dunno if I want to go to Verizon though, they tend to be expensive.

    As a blanket statement, this is false. If you're on an individual plan, yes. Due to some limitations of Sprint's family plans, I calculated it would cost me MORE with Sprint, mainly because the Simply Everything plan with two lines would be more expensive than what I was paying with Verizon. Sure, I'd get more features for the dollar, but my wife didn't want/need a smart phone. There was no conceivable way for the exact same features to a la carte my service through Sprint at a better price point than Verizon. All situations aren't created equally.

    with VZW 69.99 unlimited plan you get the same as sprints 69.99 plan except there is no addition $10 charge for 4G, therefore VZW would be cheaper

    Little update from Miami over on Droid Forums...

    He also has pics of accessories posted for the Merge which looks like it will be released very soon.

    the merge was inaccurately reported to be pushed back for 4g by everyone from engadget to droidlife and countless others. it just goes to show you really have to pick and choose who you believe right now. as for me i will go with miami (who held strong that the merge would be 3g and coming in 2010:D). here's hoping the hd will do the same. i hope he can post his pics of the hd soon.

    i wonder how long it will take for his pics of the merge accessories to get to engadget or droidlife and if they will correct their errors about this device?

    So you have faith in miami?
    I'll probably buy an EVO this week at BestBuy instead of Amazon & exercise the 30 day return if the Incredible HD shows up in December preferably with LTE capability (even if LTE network launch won't happen until Q1 2011).:eek:

    I hope miami is right & the sooner we hear something official the better..

    Yeah, these two phones have had their share of rumors, changes, speculation, etc. I'm hoping that Miami is right but I remain cautious until I see information posted by Verizon.

    If the HD comes out in December, I will probably jump on it. If it gets pushed back to January (or later) I will probably wait to see what else is available in the January/February time frame.

    There is always something better around the corner and you have to make a decision at some point. But if there are going to be several high end phones coming out in a 3-4 week span in early 2011 and I still have my upgrade available...I gotta weigh available options at that point.

    It is always better to keep all possibilities in mind. However I believe that the information Miami gives us is accurate when he relays it to us. It is Verizon that changes their minds. Verizon has pushed the HD 3 times thus far.

    But lets keep in mind he has been spot on about the og incredible, merge,Samsung tablets.

    I'm not discrediting Miami by any means...but he is not the one responsible for actually releasing the phone. Verizon is in the driver seat. I still look to Miami for info or preliminary timelines but I'm not hanging on every word he speaks. Like he said, the timeline for this phone has shifted several times already.

    I'm just waiting for the big V to actually announce this phone.

    Have you even seen the pics he released ? How about him stating it would not be 4g like EVERYWHERE else reported? The merge will be here before 2011 imo.
