Good Good. Simple as that.
Still wonder why they can't do other chipsets for other 4G standards...
Re: Good I'd actually prefer it to say 'HSPA / HSPA+ / LTE' than '3G' or '4G' (faux G).
$G label Plus the fact that with the exception of AT&T and Tmobile (USA), nobody else in the world label HSPA as 4G.

10mbps is 10mbps. I don't care if it's on Verizon's "4g" or T-Mobile's "3.75G/4G".

Wow, so they wont lie? So they dont want to lie in other countries?
They just want to lie in the US and call a 3G device 4G.
Problem wasn't that it didn't have 4G... The problem with these international "New iPad" wasn't that they don't have 4G. The problem is that they don't have the frequency set for any 4G outside of America, so it drops down to 3G. The radio is there, just not usable in that area because they don't put LTE on the same frequencies.
THe biggest liars make the most money Come on let's be real. Apple calls their device 4G capable because they can. 4G doesn't mean S#$T-when I see the legally binding definition of what 4G is in a court of law, a definition that won't be struck down or set aside by some paid for pimped judge, THEN maybe THEN it would mean something Until then its a free for all and all the slick marketing doesn't be squat. Ho hum wake me when the Corporate American technology titan back up their marketing with real quantifiable performance figures and honor contracted commitments.
American Tools Here in America we remain looking like complete tools to the world because we put marketing over accurate specification.
How come the people across the pond can force changes like this when we, who are much closer to the source, are powerless?
