Submission + - 4G anticipation delaying Verizon iPhone sales?

managerialslime writes: "The Verizon iCripplePhone (slower network speeds than AT&T and no simultaneous voice and data connections) may be thought of as a Generation 1.0 product.

It was introduced only weeks after Verizon started selling cellular modems on their 4G network, with the promise of phones later in the year.

I wonder how many people might have purchased an iPhone but are holding off to see if the yet-to-be-released iPhone 5: (a) resolves the aforementioned technical issues and (b) actually works on the Verizon 4G network.

This is a topic I haven't seen covered on any of the usual phone gossip sites (CNET, Ars Technica, Computer World, etc.)."
