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.

Data usage caps

Stupid data caps are what truly impede 4G adoption. What's the point of me getting a smartphone or mobile data device that can download at 42 mbps if I'm still stuck with a 2GB monthly data usage cap? Why would I pay just for the privilege of exceeding my monthly usage quota six times faster than with a 7 mbps device?

Eventually everybody will have 4G devices - when 3G devices are no longer made or made just for "emerging markets" but by then we'll be 4G users not by choice.
