i like apple computers...i like the iPod, iPhone and iPad...i am scared to leave at&t because i will lose my unlimited data...however the Sprint offering is becoming more and more attractive daily...Saving, Speed, and Samsung Epic...(however right now i favor the EVO, but that could all change once i play with an Epic)

Not a very good argument against the Droid X. Only offers Sprint's limited access 4G, higher contrast screen and has a front facing camera. Otherwise the Droid X is equal to or better than the Epic in most other categories. Then again, let's keep the competition running. I don't know about the rest of you, but the competition is creating some great devices, IMO. Keep one upping eachother, please.

A knock off b/c of what...the 4.3" screen? Droid X will make up in build quality what it lacks in a front facing camera. Numerous issues being reported with various diff. HTC phones (Eris, Evo, N1 etc.) whereas my first-gen DROID has been steady. As far as 4G goes, from what i can tell there is no significant speed diff. in current 3G and Sprint's 4G. Yea we see what the figures "could be" on paper but the performance doesnt reflect that at this time. Probably by the time it does it will be too late as LTE will have deployed. So you have a few more months before the big boys release actual 4G which will expose how limited WiMAXX is. But thats Sprint for you, always in a rush to be the first to do somethin but in the end...still a step behind. Good luck lol.

One carrier has plans to have LTE, which is marginally faster than WiMax as the Boston trial show, this year in 25 - 30 markets and you act as if that ends the debate. When the two can compared in real world then you can gloat, don't there will anything to do so about, until then it's just talk.

Just to kinda correct your ignorant statement Mr. "Cricket Owns" d-bag, according to the ITU (The people that set the OFFICIAL standard for network technologies) neither LTE nor WiMax meet the necessary specs to be considered a TRUE 4G network. 4G is classified as 100mbps+ not 5-10 like WiMax or 8-12 that LTE prematurely boasts with out real world application. In fact, both of these technologies exist elsewhere in the world and are not considered "4G" it's really just still 3G speeds but U.S. carriers are in the dark ages because of the FCC and need some kind of gimmick to keep the monthly billions in revenue rolling in and people signed on contracts. So take your mouth off the LTE dick long enough to do some real research on network technology. Just BC ATT and VZW are pumping out LTE soon doesn't mean diddly. K pumpkin? K
