I agree. For me its about quality and construction when it comes to converged technology. Of course I would like a little more horsepower and memory under the hood too but I am will to pay for it. They do need to cater to the two markets those who are willing to pay and those who are not just like they do with regular phones.
While I applaud Verizon's goal of super high quality testing it causes such delays that by the time they launch a product its really behind since they need to get enough ROI on it.
