A few things I hypothesized:
1. They don't have the licenses to use the LTE stack
2. The battery life was questions and they axed LTE to compensate
3. They didn't want to announce it to be LTE capable only on AT&T (and by proxy Canada), This one is unlikely as they did it with the Verizon Gnex.

Any way you slice it, that battery life is ****ing garbage. I was worried it would be bad. I can do tons on my iPhone all day and still have 30% the next morning. I wish the DNA had the Note II battery -- it would have been a perfect phone.

Oh we'll. Here's hoping the next gen 1080p phones don't have such **** battery life. I'm sure they will get better. Everything else about the DNA looks amazing.

Praying a Sprint version (or something similar) will be released with a bigger battery.

Unfortunately I'm leaving Android to join the darkside. I got a can't miss deal from a co-worker, he wanted an android phone but didn't want to pay full price or get a contract so I offered him $300 plus my S2 and he accepted for a brand new unlocked iphone 5. I almost felt bad doing it.....almost.

Upgraded to jelly bean 4.2 on my nexus 7 and I like the two different drop down menus. I don't need an app to add toggles anymore.

Yep, it's nice. I hate the new clock on the lockscreen, though.

You can change it. Some third party apps like HD Widgets have updated for use on the 4.2 lock screen.

Any of you guys know when the nexus 10 would be available in stores? Been checking online and it continues to be sold out, and just wondering if anybody had any ideas from previous buys like this.

Google will probably restock several times before any 3rd party distributor takes over.

I'd wait for Google.

I think most of this info is sort of a given, right?

Regardless, I'll be eagerly awaiting the next opportunity to buy a N4.

That they would restock this week? I haven't seen this info posted anywhere else, so I would consider them just rumors at this point. Nevertheless, I'm monitoring the page lol, even if the post pertains to US only.

Oh, I meant the part that some people will have received messed up orders and so they'll be correcting that and rushing to make this as smooth a process as possible. Less on the replenishing stock part.
