    My area is covered by LTE. If there were LTE Devices, I'd sign up for them.

    It would be very cool if they announced the new Stealth V, hdinc, or any tegra phone at all! But I'm betting they will just reveal pricing which in my predictions will be the following:

    3G
    1. 150mb @ $15 a month
    2. 5gb @$30 a month

    4G
    1. 2gb @ $25 a month
    2. 5gb @ $40 a month

    As well as the annoucenment of any additional 4G usb dongles, and possible some some of netbook with 4G built in. We can all wish for an announcement for the hdinc, but I'm predicting sometime after CES next year followed by a feb, possibly late march release, if not the exact same release date as the original dinc.

    lol ill bet bet 1cent that at least my pricing scheme mentioned above ends up being correct!

    Are there any 4G phones for Verizon yet?

    If they release a device, it'll probably be the Droid Droid, 4Droid Compatible, only on America's biggest 4Droid network, Droid Wireless. It runs Android Version.Droid.
