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.

"34% of iPhone owners mistakenly think they already have 4G"

What a surprise.

Certainly not surprising although not because of a cheap shot at Apple customers' knowledge (does the average person know what the hell is 2/3/4G anyway?) but because of Apple's branding.

If you buy an "iPhone 3G" which happens to have 3G, it's not unreasonable (for the average user who doesn't know or even care about what 3G actually is) to expect the "iPhone 4" to be 4G.
