PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, the CyanogenMod team is teasing something new. My guess is that we're either looking at the CM team getting early access to new Android versions, or - and this is something I really hope - an OEM, preferably a large one, has decided to ship a device with CyanogenMod preinstalled. A boy or girl can dream.

As with other Linux distros, you'll get the best experience from a vendor pre-load. If CM is about to be pre-installed on a commercial device (wouldn't that be nice?), I would certainly expect LTE to work flawlessly.

Yeah, I'm guessing if they have access to the source code and all the drivers, it would be sweeeeeeeeeeet ;) They wouldn't have to hack that shit.

As for reliability, from my experience with CM, it varies from device to device. Even two people running CM with the same device can have vastly different experiences, such as battery life, or whatever.

That isn't always true, remember 'netbooks' ?

You misunderstand - I'm asserting that buying a netbook with Ubuntu pre-installed will get you a better experience than buying the same netbook and then installing Ubuntu yourself.

I'm not promising a *good* experience on any particular hardware, though http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ubuntu-edge looks rather promising...
