Verizon iPhone4 Suspense: Seriously?

They're kidding, right?  People have been sitting around, listening to the clock tick for the past two years, just to get a Verizon iPhone that will be obsolete in June (when the iPhone5 launches)?

Okay, I will grant that, based on countless rumormongering (and AT&T network bashing), there have been a number of people waiting for this development for at least a couple years.

On the other hand, I suggest you simply Google iphone 4 wait to see a number of posts suggesting what I'm about to say:  Wait.

Rob Enderle of the eponymous (I love that word) Enderle Group is an analyst who seems to have substantial pull in the tech sphere.  Among other things, Enderle says to wait on getting a Verizon iPhone4 because it will be incapable of running on 4G . . . which is the latest and greatest (and fastest) cellular network technology.

Also, one of my favorite bloggers, Jason Heiner, of Tech Republic, gives five answers about the Verizon iPhone4, also noting the 4G dearth.

Why is Verizon really hyping this thing?  As the dude in the Verizon store told me the other day, Verizon wants to have people buy the iPhone4 to cover the manufacturing costs for the iPhone5.  Can you handle the suspense!!>!!!>?
