Bwhahaha ..... 34% of iPhone 4 owners thought they had a 4G phone.

CNET has compiled a useful chart of U.S. markets that are supported by at least one 4G provider. Coverage looks substantial at first glance, but for those in more rural areas -- or even metropolitan locales like San Francisco, which suffers extremely spotty coverage -- reliable 4G access is still a few years away.

And spotty coverage isn't the only factor contributing to consumer confusion. Get this: A significant portion of people who own a 3G device mistakenly think they have 4G hardware. A July survey by Retrevo found that an astonishing 34% of iPhone 4 owners thought they had a 4G phone. These customers were probably confused by their iPhone's "4″ designation, as well as the fact that the official definition of 4G is a moving target, and Apple has claimed "4G-like" speeds.

Lol don't blame them. It's confusing for the technically challenged.

And i would say 80% minimum people I talk to think that the iPhone 4S/4 is 4G. :fail

Sounds similar to the HDTV misconception where people buy an HDTV and think they are suddenly watching everything in HD.

It's not just iPhone owners... many people are stupid and believe they have something they don't have or often the opposite. You know how often I have people requesting a phone with speakerphone function...

Oh c'mon now, it was just a joke. :lol:

I still maintain that I would like to get a MBP in the future. OSX has some nice features too. I kinda wish they would go back to Nvidia cards though, tbh. I've already started learning CUDA.

Same can be said about many products... look at graphics cards... many buy a brand because they support the brand.
