Update in new post below #5 In spite of my dogging the TB a little, it should be a very good device and the talk & data (at same time) is obviously good At&t touts theirs, but 3G is not exactly everywhere you want it The reason for the title is I think what may be going on here right now is "passioned" debate in regards to the TB and VZW's 4G strategy- hence the current delays and lack of solid information. Some likely debates in the director level and above ranks in finance, marketing and sales teams. 1. Tiered 4G now or not? If so, how much? 2. Push 4G now, or wait until later in summer? 3. Hold off releasing TB until 4G network more prolific in the network? 4. Release the TB now as mainly 3G supported and lick our wounds on the 4G / TB strategy thing? Since HTC is obviously sitting on inventory and components / spending ad dollars, plus Best Buy is probably not too happy right now, you can imagine the pressure VZW uppers are dealing with. Seems no solution that does not compromise strategy or make some group unhappy (consumers seem to be the last thing considered, it seems). VZW may simply be trying to see what is the least damaging course to take with the TB. Seems the TB was supposed to be their first product to push 4G to consumers in mass and the device is ahead of the network curve.
