re: Wireless Innovation Slows, And That's A Good Thing
Great piece and great point. I have a two year old HTC Inspire. No LTE. No dual core. No front facing camera. Otherwise, this phone does everything I need it to do. Still it is nice to know that my next phone, whether I buy it next week or next year, will pretty much meet my needs for at least another two year and probably beyond. And yes, LTE is anything but prevalent (especially in NH which has no major metro areas).

I am glad innovation is slowing and that I donG«÷t have to worry (as much) about planned obsolescence. I think the tech world needs time to refine what is currently available as none of the hardware and types of connectivity currently available are true silver bullets [read: we need better batteries and more consistent signal strength and coverage].
