    Verizon LTE World Phone?

    I like the super smart phones being released now. I want LTE. Android required. I want a Nexus or Razr type of world phone. Do you think Verizon will deliver?

    It might be a while. From what I understand trying to have all those radios in one phone gives them trouble. Maybe when the next generation chips come out it'll be more feasible and we'll start to see some world phones.

    According to the specs on the Motodev site, the razr has LTE, CDMA and GSM/UTMS radios. It's also been stated by Matt (MotoForums) that the verizon model won't be global "at this time" suggesting to some that gsm isn't enabled, but perhaps can be...

    Well, that's a glimmer of hope, unfortunately not enough of a glimmer to invest in. I really like Verizon's network in the US and I have an unlimited data plan so it it disappointing as an Android fan that the only high-end world phone offered by Verizon is the Iphone 4S and nothing new on Android.

    Wouldn't be that critical if it wasn't for traveling to Europe regularly. Good thing I'm not in a hurry, I'm not eligible for an upgrade until March. We could see another two iterations of LTE phones in 4-5 months. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    If I recall right, I4S is not global. It is a CDMA device; Droid 2 Global (fully unlocked down to the radio) and D3 (same state) are the only global phones available on verizon. Frankly, I'd rather not be on the bleeding edge; if I were to upgrade right now, it'd be to the Droid 3, not the Bionic, Razr, or Nexus. A solid, reliable, global workhorse>the ultimate device in my honest opinion.

    According to the Verizon rep I talked to and teh Verizon web site, the I4S is a world phone and has a SIM card....still it's an Iphone

    At this point, I personally wouldn't invest in a device that doesn't support LTE......I feel the need, the need for speed!

    Not sure about this the V iPhone, but Verizon reps have told me that several phones are Global that are not. (Bionic for one) Their belief is that if it has a SIM it is global. That is just not the case, and they need better training on their models.

    Just to add to the comment above, the Incredible 2 is also a world phone. Too bad it's not LTE - it would be an ideal phone in my opinion. I love the size of it, the stability of it, and the good battery life.

    Iphone 4s - is a global device - the latest for VZW in that category

    Other Global smartphone in VZW lineup are : HTC Incredible2 / Motorola Droid 3 Global / Motorola Droid Pro for Android also joined by the once coveted Blackberry and its deep line up of 2 phones - the Bold/9930 and Torch/9850 and the lone Windows representative - HTC Trophy
