Verizon told us earlier that it wouldn't be carrying Windows Phone 7 devices until 2011, and now Microsoft's twisting the knife by confirming that its new platform will be GSM-only until the first half of 2011. So much for our dreams of a 4G Windows Phone 7 device on Sprint, we suppose.

Security and robustness alone make GSM inferior. There is a reason the military only uses CDMA for secure communications that aren't via satellite etc.

The only real reason GSM is so popular around the world is due to it being cheap.

It takes moments to copy a SIM card, duplicating an ESN/MEID of a CDMA based device is a heck of a lot harder due to the hard-coded passwords on the devices. That's the gist of it really, if someone else wants to elaborate on it please go ahead.

I don't know how true this comment may or may not be. But I know one thing for Sure. and that is that Currently my Nexus One with T-Mobile's HSPA+ network is currently faster than anything I've seen verizon do, OR Sprint's 4G. I've tested my Nexus One against my friends 4G EVO many of times, and my T-Mobile speeds blow it away....

Wait for the T-Mobile G2, the first officially built for Tmo's HSPA+ speeds. I bet it will be faster than hell..

Here's some results of my Nexus One running on T-mobiles Service here in Vegas where I live

GSM has advantages too, like voice+data. Then there is the ability to travel with it.
