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.

Latency

+1 for the latency problem.

It takes approximately the same insane time to establish a 2G and 3G network connection, the good side of 3G being that you don't lose that connection when a text comes in. Good 3G connectivity is relatively hard to find, even EDGE is not quite everywhere. So frankly, I couldn't care less about 4G coming to 1% of my country which will probably not be the one I live in ;)
