Well Verizon's new PTT system is out.

I have two "demo" phones - Kyocera KX444Cp. The old system had about a 1.5
second wait after you pushed the PTT button. The new system has vitually no
wait time - almost instant.

I think that Nextel will be worried.

Nextel has plans to merge with Sprint. I don't think they need to be
worried. If Cingular or T-Mobile get PTT, I think CDMA carriers need to
be worried because data roaming is a standard of GSM (which would
probably give them the largest PTT area if it's a VOIP type system) and
data users like the convenience of a large DATA coverage area.
