This is in accordance with a previous rumour, but take into account this is a word-of-mouth story, which is said to originate from regional Verizon reps, so things may prove to be rather different.
However, it is claimed that marketing materials are starting to appear and some lucky guys are testing these handsets, so their launch must be near.
Also, the rumour that the Samsung 4G LTE smartphone will be Bing-free is confirmed, and this is certainly a good news for quite a few Verizon customers. In the meantime, check out our Samsung 4G LTE smartphone and HTC ThunderBolt hands-ons, and if you happen to be a Verizon rep, drop us a hint whether this rumour holds water or not. It will be appreciated.
