AT&T's 3G network coverage is so small it's hard to see.

Verizon won't have to build new towers. just change the equipment they already have. supposedly they will have 100 million people covered with LTE by the years end. either way verizon is over a year ahead of atnt in the 4G department.

I'd like someone else to respond more knowledgable about this, but ... I think everybody faces the same challenges of adding antennas to existing towers, but ... They may have to add space in the cell site facility to accomodate equipment. Many towers are not owned by any specific carrier and already have Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, and T Mobile on the same tower. Companies like American Towers (may have been bought out) build towers and lease space to cell carriers.

@BlackberryUser for your viewing pleasure Verizon is bounds ahead of any other carrier in the LTE department. The Vodafone partnership has given them the knowledge of gsm networks and helped them to step up the LTE game. Yes, Verizon will have to upgrade equipment, however, they have been upgrading equipment for the past year. This is going to give them the edge in the market as not only having the first LTE network, but also alowing them to grow it keeping them in the lead of the largest network. Having the largest notwork has been their claim to fame and they are not going to allow that title to go to any other carrier.

AMOLED "displays are known to wash out in direct sunlight"....have you seen Ipad outdoors? If Iphone 4 is the same it wont "wash out" it would be unusable.....remember your words to praise or not Iphone 4 display when you review it. Today this is FOR YOU a drawback.

That is way more resolution than they needed for a 3.5" screen. Such a waste. Even the best screen on a 17" macbook pro only displays 133ppi. Why would you need a phone that displays over 300. And if i'm not mistaken, almost no one puts 300dpi photos on the internet. Seems like a bragging tool that in the real world has little effect. I think they are trying to over compensate for their ridiculously crappy 480x320 pixels in the 3gs

You're calling the pixels on the 3GS ridiculously crappy and then you say that the increase in ppi is a waste. You should make up your mind. If they kept the ppi the same, everyone would complain that the iPhone doesn't change anything. If they upped it just a little bit, people would say that they are playing catch up and that all they do is come up with minor updates. Now they have the best screen in the world and you're complaining that the ppi is too high? Unbelievable.

The Iphone 4 has 326 ppi but the average human eye can only see about 300 so whats the point

Wow, I'm so glad they posted this completely useless article. I didn't understand that the iPhone had a really high PPI count the first thousand times they wrote an article about it. This really helped. Damn, Get off iPhone's cock PhoneArena.
