Google "The Nexus 4 is absolutely wonderful, but it's also vexing. Frustrating. Annoying. It's easily the best Android phone on the market right now, and has some of the most powerful software that's ever been put on a mobile phone. It's an upgrade from last year's Galaxy Nexus in every way. It's terrific - save for one small thing. " Lack of LTE, obviously. Bigger issue for me as a European: glass back. Apparently it cracks. Who'da thunk?

Maybe they make a big deal because it's through-and-through IP? (and/or because when the story get going there were no IP 3G networks - which are still back-end only, I suppose essentially tunneling "legacy" services)

Yeah, we discussed it - but maybe not the limit stopped us, maybe there was not much more to add. And I must again point out that, if using the handset only for data (with data-only SIM, any "legacy" channel used only for control messages - which, considering long standby times, should be irrelevant), switching to UMTS from EDGE also ~halves battery life. ;) (likewise when switching to... LTE)
