Wot We've Learnt

1:50 PM -- It ain't easy being 4G.

Seriously, with Verizon Wireless and Sprint Corp. (NYSE: S) talking up their own preferred flavors of next-generation technology here in Vegas it is really easy to forget that this wireless stuff is really, really difficult.

But Sprint has backed off its original targets for a limited commercial launch in April for its Xohm WiMax deployment, blaming backhaul issues.

Does anyone really think that Long-Term Evolution (LTE) networks will have it any easier? I doubt it. This show has really reminded me that these things always take longer than you think.
