Sprint Nextel has been busy announcing anything new about its EV-DO Revision A rollout while Verizon Wireless has stayed quiet on the topic. To the casual bystander it appeared that Sprint Nextel was pulling away with a huge lead, but Verizon Wireless has been holding its own in the upgrade race:

We’ve had a number of communities lit up with Rev. A for a few months, and expect to introduce a first PC card in the coming weeks. We won’t be announcing a launch of Rev. A until we hit a significant number of markets up and running, though. — Verizon Wireless, Jeffrey Nelson
