    I’m still waiting to see if this will go to AT&T. If this has LTE and on AT&T, I’ll look at it closely along with Nokia’s offerings. September 5th can’t come fast enough. What will make it better is that updates are now bypassing the carriers, as it should’ve been in the first place, due to the failure of the carriers to send out the updates after receiving them.

    I’m waiting to see what comes to T-mobile, bit still love my Dell Venue Pro. Also liking the update to come independent of carriers :)
