It's not up to it's potential for sure. Right now Verizon's average 4G is 50-60 mbps. With the money put into maximizing 3G we can cover a lot of area with midrange 4G. I think over the next 2 years it'll mature.
True G4 which at this point only Verizon's LTE 4G network can uphold (though the others are working to reach a true 4G standard by 2012) is truly A LOT faster than even the best 3G connection. The few areas who have it right now are raving about it. Mobile G4 supplied wi-fi is like having a cable connection from the videos I seen of users.
Ipad (2) needs flash support imo.It's best as a web surfing device and incompatibility with a large share of the internet ruins the whole concept.
You can download other browsers from the app store which support flash. Though admittedly it doesn't run as good as on a windows device. Though it truly is Adobe's fault, there's been a long standing stand off between Steve Jobs and Adobe, after following it for a while you see it's really Adobe who refuses to give at all. Apple strives to make the smoothest, most dependable product possible, which involves having to cut off the loose ends, flash sadly being one of them :down:.
yuck, the browse and talk feature cant make the transition to verizons cdma network. hopefully this will be fixed by iphone5 which i hope comes out soon.
Yeah that's something that does suck about Verizon. Though during the press conference Verizon said how when they get the 4G network up can running this year, than the data/voice feature will be available, not to mention video chatting over 4G.
The Verizon iPhone was just announced, they seem to have changed to antenna.. I still would wait for the 5th gen lol.
Sadly, no real news on the iPad 2 :confused:. It's supposedly going to have a higher resolution screen (which I don't believe is true, upgrading the screen already would give the app developers a lot of problems with the old iPad apps, not to mention piss off the 1st gen people a lot.), a front, and rear facing camera, a faster processor, and a slighting different shape, more like the new iPods how the back is flat, but the corners are curved, this'll let it sit flat on it's back without wobble, and make it a small amount thinner. Everything but the higher screen resolution is likely. Though I hope it's all true..
It's been a damn long time comin', the Verizon iPhone is to be announced tomorrow at Verizon's news convention in NYC.
I follow Mac Rumors very closely for the latest rumors, and news on Apple. For months now everything has been pointing to a big event from both Apple, and Verizon. Between break cuts from both companies, the two CEO's seen out together, and ATNT's iPhone contract running out mid last year, it all pointed to it. Now, we have news from inside sources who've been proven consistent before.

Verizon claims it can handle the millions that will be switching over, and using the iPhone. Guess we'll have to wait and see!
