    +1, hopefully they have tiered options that start much less than 60/month..
    Early reports indicate that LTE data packages will be tiered, but those same reports said that 3G would be unlimited forever, and we're already hearing rumblings that it won't. Probably the $60 is unlimited and details on the lower tiers will be forthcoming.

    Of course, once phones start the switch to LTE/4G then the demand on the 3G network will drop and there'll be no reason to tier access to it -- we hope.

    I would LOVE to pay $60 a month for LTE data...That is if they allow me to drop voice/text plans and go completely IP.

    And further research on my part has indicated the contract will be up soon. My bad. I thought it was in effect till 2012.

    That may be why they're trying to lock everyone into Android handsets now, so that when the ViPhone rolls out they can sucker people into buying it at full cost. So what's up with all the knocks on Apple via the Droid Does ads? Or was it just a victory dance?

    In any case, unless Verizon botches something here, it'll be good news for them.

    The $59.99 LTE data plan is for Data Card (Mobile BroadBand) Plans. Its the same price as it is now. Nothing to freak out about.

    EXACTLY. $60 a month with no voice/text plans is perfect. If not, then my jaw just dropped. If they allow tethering, I guess I could get rid of my Cable if I had strong 4G, then it would be worth it.

    +1 to Mojo, +1 to alm0614

    Yeah, however I can see how all those iPhoners jumping on our Verizon will impact connectivity and data transfer rates in areas where it's already iffy or congested...

    Lucky for me I'm out in the boondocks and a second nearby tower went up last month -- just needs to be turned on...

    So we kind of know the specs for the Droid Pro, any inkling whether or not it'll be 4G enabled?
