PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless A recent Retrevo Gadgetology survey suggests that users are unclear on what exactly 4G means, don't know whether their current mobile service is 4G or not, and even if they do know, are unsure of the benefit. It also seems that mobile device owners' loyalty to their chosen platform is more important to them than higher network speeds.

No big surprise that a large percentage of iphone users are confused and uninformed /troll

But on the question of general 4g confusion, I would say that the fault lies in the operators for wildly diverging from 4g (the technology).

Frankly I prefer the way it is generally being done in europe. We are getting this stuff later but at least we know what we are getting.

NOTE: I also fail to see what is so useful about 4g; Wireless networking is so expensive that I can easily see someone mistakenly bankrupting themselves....
