Still don't agree.

"The differences between Android 2.2 & 2.3 are pretty significant."

Not really, the site you refer to makes that clear. There is only one key improvement, which is better battery management.

Also, unlike LG and Samsung, HTC will most likely upgrade the software soon. HTC even supports old phones so the chance of getting Gingerbread when it is fully released and test on DINC2 are high.

"What is wrong with having a 4G device now? You never know when it'll come in handy. 4G reception may be within range of your areas a lot sooner than you think. "

There are two reasons. The main one is battery life. LTE chipsets consume more battery power, whether you are on LTE or not.

The second is cost and plans. Why pay extra for a possibility in the future? Not everyone is leading edge, and for many DINC offers them what they need. Thunderbolt is at the price of what it is now because of LTE's release. It is much more expensive, but without 4G, it isn't necessarily better than DINC2.

"The wait continues...hope they have an answer for the HTC EVO 3D or HTC Sensation 4G by July."

That is not an alternative for many, since they are not available on Verizon. For many folks, especially on the East Coast, it's Carrier first, phone second.
