    For the default keyboard, the lag went away for me when I disabled the 'Show correction suggestions' (I set it to portrait mode only). I do kind of like that option at times, though.

    Also, I ended up buying the Thumb Keyboard from the market and that seems to have eliminated (or reduced) the lag also? Can anyone else confirm this? I think it is showing suggestions, too, I forget. Love the Thumb Keyboard, btw.

    keyboard lag is an issue, and the thumb keyboard does not solve it either (although makes it more enjoyable). The Browser i believe is the issue...other browsers do not have this issue but cannot give that complete feeling the stock one does. No doubt there are plenty of opportunities there with the browser... It has a dual core processor, there is no reason spell corrections or anything like that should load the machine enough to delay printing the charater..It will get better tho.

    As far as the upgrade goes...im hoping that they deploy a newer version of honeycomb with some of the bugs worked out before the LTE upgrade and it comes back with a better browser amongst other things..(far stretch?lol)

    Here is another interesting possibility, Let hope it is true. 4G LTE service is now available (as of 2 days ago) in my area. I called Verizon customer service and they were still clueless as to when the update would be rolling out!

    I am confused by all this 4G talk..... have the networks actually changed? Or is this 4G merely from a marketing standpoint?

    Here is an article that makes me wonder about all the 4G talk:

    4g-is-a-myth-and-confusing: Personal Finance News from Yahoo! Finance

    Straight from that article...
    _____________

    To illustrate: Sprint bought a majority stake in Clearwire (Nasdaq: CLWR - News), which uses a new network technology called WiMAX that's capable of speeds ranging from 3 Mbps to 10 Mbps. That's a different technology from Verizon's new network, based on a standard called Long Term Evolution (LTE), which will average 5 Mbps to 12 Mbps.

    Seeing what its competitors were up to, T-Mobile opted to increase the speed capabilities of its existing 3G-HSPA+ network instead of pursuing a new technology. Its expanded network -- now called 4G -- will reach speeds of 5 Mbps to 12 Mbps.

    No matter what they're called, all of these upgrades are clear improvements -- and the carriers shelled out billions to make them. Current "3G" networks offer actual speeds that range from between 500 kilobits per second to 1.5 Mbps.

    _____________

    Maybe it's not 100mbps but I would call it an improvement before I called it a myth...
