I owned the Verizon HTC thunderbolt. Which is a top of the line phone. I bought this phone because Verizon assured me that I would have full 4G lte coverage in my town. Boy were they so full of crap. I barly ever had 4G in my town. And i Live in south florida which is has some of the highest numbers of 4G towers. Simply apple realizes that there is no point in jumping into the 4G market when it isn't even ready yet, which also requires an entire redesign of the iPhone to fit LTE antennas and 3G antennas. Thus a more Bulky phone for getting 4G coverage about 5 percent of the time. 4G does offer incredible speeds don't get me wrong. But a lot of people would be very disappointed in how much it drains the battery. Would the average iPhone User want to suffer that much of there battery for a substancial DL/Upload speed increase. Also from what I saw from the keynote. They were able to manipulate the antennas to work simultaneously and from what the charts displayed, we should get the same speeds from our 3G device as others are getting from their android 4G devices WHEN THEY ARE IN 4G ZONES. They are waiting for the 4G LTE platform to mature before stepping into those waters. But the Next refresh likely the iPhone 5 will have 4G LTE antennas. But I completely agree with apple waiting and giving us a decent upgrade with the 4S to hold us over until the major refresh most likely 10 months from now.
