Verizon Wireless appears ready to introduce several new devices including computer tablets and 3-5 new phones capable of using their LTE High Speed Wireless Network by May 2011 Chief Executive Lowell McAdam said Friday.
Contenders in manufacturing these devices include Motorola, Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics.
Motorola, HTC, LG and Research In Motion could also be among the first next year with phones for the Long Term Evolution (LTE) high-speed wireless network that Verizon plans to switch on later this year.
"I'd say all the major manufacturers we're talking to today are making the transition to LTE," McAdam said at Reuters Global Technology Summit.
Verizon is busy building it's LTE network to cover 25 to 30 markets with 100 million people, including New York by the end of this year.
This is all following a strong year of sales from products like the Motorola Droid and what could have been even stronger sales from the HTC Incredible.
McAdam also mentioned that if it had not been for restraints on the HTC Incredible it would have definitely outsold the Motorola Droid.
Demonstrations of the new Computer tablets are expected to be presented at the Consumer Electronics Show in January of next year.
McAdam believes that the entire Verizon Network will have LTE coverage by 2013.
