This is all about carriers.  The bottom line is Google can't release an LTE phone without giving in to carrier damands.  They don't want to do that, so they're saying no.  Good for them.  We all saw them get screwed by Verizon with the Galaxy Nexus, and nobody (except maybe Verizon) wants that again.

 

Go Google!  Keep releasing truly unlocked devices where I have the choice, and I get to decide, as far as it's technologically possible, where my device runs.  The demanding cell carriers are stifling innovation with their lock-down policies, their draconian contracts and their fragmented networks.  They are not being made to compete with each other, and we are paying the price.  Any hole I can help punch in that wall is something I am happy to do.  I am glad Google is giving me some of the tools to do it.

 

No, I do not need LTE... not at that price.
