Verizon Wireless announced their LTE 4G wireless data enabled hardware lineup at CES.
It includes 4 phones (all Android based), 2 tablets (including a 4G version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab), 2 mobile hotspot devices, and 2 netbooks. Verizon’s 3G-to-WiFi mobile hotspots may have limited usefulness since they have already said that LTE service will be capped at 5GB per month. PCMag.com noted that this quota can be used up in 32 minutes under ideal conditions.
Sprint’s 4G, by comparison, does not have any data cap. However, Sprint’s underlying provider of their 4G services, Clear, is experiencing financial difficulty.
