MS and AT&T need to buy a dictionary. Might just be me, but the term early is a part of the set, early, mid, late. IMHO we already passed early April. We are currently mid April. Even dividing April up into first half/second half, we are only a couple of days from second half. Might have been better to just leave the early out of the sentence and say April. Then if testing is completed in the next week and rollout starts, folks would have been pleased. Well maybe not pleased, but less irritated.
Sometimes you are the anteater, sometimes you are the ant.
