LG's VL600 LTE/EVDO USB modem for Verizon revealed
Up to now, Verizon has been running tests on its 4G LTE network in Boston and Seattle, as up to 30 markets are expected to be live by the end of the year. In preparation, a leaked Verizon document shows how the carrier's LTE plans compete with other provider's LTE and WiMAX service, and there is even a mock-up of a Verizon LTE SIM Card that would be used in devices. So what else is missing? Knowing which devices will be available. It has been speculated that the first would be wireless network cards, and it looks like the LG VL600 that recently passed through the FCC will be one of them. The LG VL600 connects to your PC's USB port and it can use the LTE 700MHz band, as well as the EVDO 1900MHz/800Mhz bands in areas without LTE coverage. While this is good news for business and enterprise customers that require fast data connections for their laptops while out in the field, we'd still like to know what smartphones will get the LTE treatment.
