It could be battery reasons or the 4G Network isn't fully developed yet. Sure there is 4G, but coverage is not yet there. Pretty much you can get 3G Signal anywhere.

Because not all networks use the 4G as written in the specifications, some use different parts of it and adapt others, so no network uses actual 4G. For Sony to offer 4G they would have to decide which provider to use and you would not be able to change.

At least with 3G there is a possibilty for a change later after the deal with AT&T runs out (although not with Verizon as it uses a different way of encoding it signal, you would need a rebuild like Aplle did with the iphone).

How many times did Sony get burned by placing bets on what was the best tech out there at the time?

Do you remember the IR for the PSP?  Yeah that was a waste.

4G is only available in a few areas while 3G is almost nation wide.....plus can you seriously tell me that 4G will not be replaced by something else as the next great mobile connection platform within the next 5 years?  3G has now become common and nearly standard.  4G isn't there yet...and with the economy the way it is and the cost of putting up 4G towers......it's not going to be a replacement in the near future.

They want unlimited 3G Data plan for PSV, with 4G it would be impossible the costs would take up to few thousands a month, and 3G is will give you about 3-4 MB per second, average
