    According to The Wall Street Journal, Verizon's presence at CES will be "unusually heavy." Reports indicate that Verizon will announce multiple new devices, including more than one 4G capable smartphone, and a 4G capable tablet, from manufacturers' Samsung HTC, Motorola, LG, and others. One of those devices is expected to be the HTC Incredible HD, aka, HTC Thunderbolt. Furthermore, it's likely they will show off the Android tablet that Motorola has been teasing recently, and a General Motors car with a Verizon network based OnStar system!

    This stuff looks pretty exciting. Stay tuned all week for more details as the show progresses!

    Yeah, but that doesn't make the tablet itself 4G capable.

    All I want is a dual core LTE handset to be announced for End of Month shipping. I don't care if it is HTC, Moto or LG. I want dual core POWER!!! It will complement my Viewsonic GTab nicely! I can then combine the two like Voltron and it the finished device will become sentient and start SkyNET. WOOHOO! Fun times!

    Dear HTC,

    Please include a qsdm8660 in your new thunderbolt, or i will cry, and motorola and LG will take the dual-core prize.

    Love,

    As much as I would like to have a 4G phone (since we have 4G here in Nashville:icon_ banana:) until I see something about pricing I'm in no hurry. If they adopt anything like the pricing they have for the 4G modems I'll pass.... I'm not a 'heavy' data user (really just basic work related use) but it would not be justifiable at the ridiculous 4G modem prices...

    ^Would be nice. I know I sound like a broken record but I want some more dual cores out to do some comparisons with the Tegra 2.

    Unless Tegra 2 is gonna be a baseline and all the phone manufactures are gonna go with it for the first gen dual core phones. If thats the case then it doesnt matter.

    They both support LTE in the CDMA standard, in addition to big red flavors of 3G and evdo. The 8660 has a maximum clock rate of 1.2ghz, so would prob be 1ghz for best battery performance. Speculation of course, but the timeline makes perfect sense to me. And this was back in June!!
