Submission + - Verizon LTE To Focus First On Business Users (computerworld.com)

CWmike writes: Verizon Wireless said Wednesday that it will launch its faster Long Term Evolution (LTE) wireless network in 38 cities, reaching 110 million people, on Sunday, with the initial focus on business users who deploy LTE over new $100 USB modems connected to laptops. What's less clear is when actual smartphones will be sold by Verizon that are ready for advertised LTE download speeds of 5Mbit/sec. to 12 Mbit/sec. That speed is about 10 times faster than what Verizon currently offers. Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg recently said LTE smartphones will be launched by February, while Verizon CTO Tony Melone today said they would be ready by mid-2011, although he added that his timeline should not be taken as 'any different' from Seidenberg's. More information on devices and release dates will be announced at next month's Consumer Electronics Show, Melone said.
