Hah

Apple fans and 'some news outlets' not buying the excuse that Google didn't put LTE in the Nexus 4 because of battery life? Where were these same people when Apple claimed that they didn't put HSPA into the original iPhone for the exact same reason?

Yeah.

Yeah.

Apple fans won't buy that excuse, because the iPhone 5 already has LTE, and they were able to offer it without impacting battery life very much.

Keeping the cost of an unsubsidized handset down at a time when HSPA+ is perfectly serviceable seems much more plausible and reasonable anyway.

Re: Hah

You do know that UMTS/HSPA is "3G" right?

Re: Hah

You do know "3G" or "4G" is a marketing term these days right?

Right, and knowing this, why do you think I said HSPA rather than "3G" ?

Re: Hah

There could be two reasons:

1. For marketing reasons
2. To show that HSPA is a inferior product simply because it falls under "3G".

I leaned more towards option 2 based on how that comment was directed. So if I misinterpreted your response then feel free to correct me.
