I don't understand...

I just don't get why they didn't have this taken care of before hand knowing what they knew about the EVO and it's other siblings.
Essentially this is the EVO for Verizon with very slight tweaks here and there. The same battery life that became famous with the EVO is now on it's twin brother, the Thunderbolt.
All the specs for this thing have been out for a minute, so the only thing that actually surprised me about the device is the lack of a 4G toggle. With Verizon's own admitted plans to TIER data plans soon, that's not a comfortable thought. Forced overage anyone? Not to mention that means the phone is always going to be looking for a 4G network. Even more battery gone.
And can someone tell me why I have to pay $249 for it?
I had high hopes for this bad boy so if they can get a software/firmware update to it with a 4G toggle and drop the price, then this thing is a monster.
