Even China has better WP7 Devices!

Look, China is getting the HTC Titan.  Pretty sad that China gets a high end Windows Phone before Verizon does!

Find it funny... It's on PREORDER...  Means it is not even out yet.  Verizon is waiting for Windows 8 and true LTE support instead of a patch...  Maybe then there will be better devices coming out.  We been through this more than a handful of times.

Verizon can't take Mango or Tango for LTE, its a technical reason, and they will not take non-LTE phones.

When you are done doing the math, that puts new phones out till Apollo.

I don't know what you mean by "true LTE" support.  The Titan 2 and Nokia 900 are both full LTE coming out this month.  Not HSPA+, which I know CDMA doesn't have.  It's a patch in the OS that adds the LTE support, and it works.

There could very well be a technical issue with having LTE and a CDMA radio in WP7.  A handoff problem within the OS, but that hasn't been posted anywhere.

It has already been know it's a patched support and not full actual support for LTE.  When the next major release it will have true full 100% support, and that's when Verizon will more than likely look at Windows Phones.  Until then Verizon will not look at them as they want 100% full support and not a patchwork job.

I follow Windows Phone news quite closely, and I have NEVER antyhing saying it's not true LTE support.  Please show me where you saw this?

Of course not... That's the problem... How often are they going to say something like that or even a "fan site" saying something when most of the writers have little to no coding experience.

Then I can't agree with you, if you have no proof.  There could still be a CDMA/LTE incompatabilty, I will give you that, but saying the Titan 2 and 900 aren't going to be real LTE devices, I am not going to go along with.

If you say so. There are 0 LTE Windows phones on Verizon. Windows Phone 7.5 does not have the framework changes for true LTE support. Windows Phone 8 will, and that's when you will see Verizon with a second Windows Mobile phone. You can bet on it.

The only way it can be proven is to reverse engineer the code and possibly being sued. Someone who believes fan sites isn't worth the risk...
