Samsung's new Combo FemtoCell for Verizon does EVDO

Samsung's new Combo FemtoCell for Verizon does EVDO
When we reviewed Verizon's Network Extender last year, it got pretty high marks, as it did well in voice quality and coverage, but data was limited to only 1X speeds. At the time we had a feeling that an EVDO version would eventually be out, and it seems we were right. This week at CES, Samsung unveiled their new Combo FemtoCell Network Extender, which adds EVDO Rev A to the mix, as well as supporting 8 connections at once, instead of just 4. We are interested in testing it's data speed (while connected to a broadband cable connection) and see if its faster than Verizon's EVDO Rev A over-the-air tower network, but it still leaves us guessing if a 4G LTE version will be in the works for next year? Expect the new Samsung Combo FemtoCell to be released in Q2 2010.
