Verizon LTE device hitting Best Buy this fall?

Verizon LTE device hitting Best Buy this fall?
Consumer electronics Best Buy has been in the limelight of late for various reasons, but we are once again seeing them step forward after a leaked document is hinting to one unexpected surprise. Although it was only recently that we heard about Verizon bringing their LTE network to 30 NFL cities before the end of the year, the leaked document alleged to be from Best Buy mentions a Verizon LTE device coming to the retailer this fall.

Specifically the document states, “New activations for Verizon LTE devices: BEAST will support the new Verizon LTE (4G) devices coming into the market this fall.” This is surprising to say the least when we have not heard anything in regards to any consumer end LTE devices aside from the fact that the service will be coming shortly. Best Buy's very own BEAST system, which is used to activate and process transactions, looks to be ready to take on any LTE device from Big Red. It's difficult to say at this point what the device in question is going to be – whether it be an actual phone or some kind of mobile broadband modem. Still, it's looking mightily good if we do indeed see some kind of LTE device this fall.
