I read a Verizon White paper on their move away from CDMA. Looking at the specifications of the 950XL wonder if Verizon is waiting to reduce their CDMA reliant devices. Microsoft Lumia 950 XL specs.
I found articles regarding an AT&T Verizon merger. That in itself was interesting, but maybe unlikely to happen.
So, I'm still disappointed just because of perceived politics of it all. I will confess, even if I got a 950XL will get the Surface Phone. And, trust me, whom ever's system it works on will have me as a customer.
Thanks for participating in my rant. Maybe this all is part of the marketing schema to gage the need before release. I agree with everyone's post.
Yes Verizon is moving away from CDMA but they can't just yet. They are already authenticating LTE devices like GSM devices. However they still have a large portion of their network reliant on CDMA and they hope to complete everything no later than 2020.
