Best Buy Expecting Verizon LTE Devices “This Fall”

It looks like Best Buy has been handed some information regarding the release of LTE (4G) devices from Verizon.  In fact, they fully expect some to be available “this fall” and have already updated BEAST, their internal activation system, to accommodate these mysterious LTE phones.  While no specific devices are listed, this is one of the first times we’ve actually heard “devices” mentioned rather than the service which Verizon has said is coming to 30 NFL cities by the end of the year.

Droid Incredible HD anyone?  (I know that name is just made up, but it sounds neat.)

Cheers Android Guy!

    I franchise a Verizon Wireless, and our system was changed roughly two months ago in order to accomodate for the 4G sim ID, looks like theirs finally some movement in the system

    How do you know the DX is 4G capable? I will upgrade my MOTO droid right now, if I knew the DX will work with 4G when available.

    heck yeah that's a nice setup. nuance even a normal google experience phone too! those seem non existent nowadays

  • Bigsike

    The DX is already 4g capable :)

    My dream service plan from Verizon would be a true unlimited plan that completes pricewise with Sprint or other carriers that offer low cost unlimited voice, text & data.

    BTW, get ready for per-kilobyte charges for LTE (4G) plans from Verizon. Their CEO has already stated that they plan to do away with unlimited data plans for 4G.

    They won't be LTE phones. They'll be LTE wireless cards and the sort. Just like Clear. I wouldn't expect LTE phones until well into next year.

    There wont be any LTE phones from Verizon until early next year. The LTE devices that are coming this fall are modems for computers and netbooks

    My dream phone right now would be: HTC, Verizon LTE, 4.3-4.5″ screen with as high a res as they can so i can stop hearing about retina nonsense, 1.3GHz or better CPU (or a dual 1GHz), minimum 512MB ram, 8GB internal storage + SD card, 2MP+ front camera, 8MP+ rear camera, 2.2 out the gate with prompt update to 3.0 when available, Sense 2.0 can be on it as long as it doesn't screw with an android 3.0 update, and all the other bells and whistles…

    It was assumed they would have “DEVICES” available at the launch of their LTE network this fall/winter. But its expected those devices will be air card and the like, and smartphones/phones will follow a few months later.

  • Princepwnage02

    Is it not possible these are just the data sticks, Kellex? I keep hearing we won't be seeing Android devices until early 2011, but we should be seeing first “devices” (which could be an updated MiFi) before the year is up.
