Verizon demonstrates LTE streaming 1080p video Tablet
This week at CES, Verizon is demoing an Nvidia Tegra-powered Ultra Tablet which is capable of viewing 1080p video thanks to the upcoming 4G LTE network. The Tablet utilizes a Motorola 4G modem and is being streamed full HD video using a pre-commercial LTE network set up in Vegas just for CES. This demonstration further shows the benefits of 4G LTE speeds and Verizon's commitment to bringing its customers new technology. By the end of 2010 Verizon is expected to have LTE active in 25-30 markets. The Ultra Tablet was built by IDC, a Seattle based engineering and design firm, which worked with Verizon, Nvidia and Motorola for its completion. There is no word yet if the Tablet will be for sale.

Apparently you missed a whole sentence: ""By the end of 2010 Verizon is expected to have LTE active in 25-30 markets.""

That's if everything runs smoothly and you know that's never happens. That's 11months away for everything to go according to plan. I can see if they were expecting it in like march 2010. No one can account for 11months away but that would be nice

ask anybody at at&t when we (verizon)release lte 4g later this year at&t will be a year and a half behind us. and we bought all the 700 spectrum which means are calls will be better in buildings and more places lower the number better the signal higher the number the worse and we sold all of our 1900mghz to at&t lmao. keep using luke wilson because like your service at&t he is a garbage actor just like your network lol. verizon doesnt need named actors we just let our network do the talking. question what will at&t do when we get the i-phone this year there customers come in everyday wanting to switch

I can tell what caliber of employee you are by your ridiculous postings. You might work for VZW, but you sure seem like an tool!

Plus verizon didn't buy all the 700mhz spectrum.. they bought the c block of it.. at&t bought 700 mhz as well but a smaller amount and in different blocks.. Verizon got the c block because it's open source. Anyone can put there compatible device on there and Verizon can charge them lol

Im tired of all this Verizon nobodies downing ATT ever since you guys FINALLY surpassed them. So what! Now the expectation is on you guys so every one is expecting everything from yall so i hope yall can just keep it up this year and that no one in the company does anything stupid. In the meantime ATT can take a breath,not worry about all the media and he say she say crap and not have anyone on there back now and they can chill in the cut and do whatever they doing this year.

mateo.. when was this "finally"? when verizon became verizon? lol the network is bigger, and more robust, the 3g coverage is leagues ahead of ATT and has been forever... so what is "finally" ?? lol. ATT only became a "big company" in the cell business when it merged with Cingular to "pull ahead" of verizon in customer base only. Verizon was on its way to taking back the "biggest" carrier long before the Alltell merger, that just sped it along. No, ATT has always been a wannae. And they are a joke. They charge like VZW, but the have crap service. And now, they have less 7.2mb/s 3g than Tmobile (which is half the price) and they are losing their iphone exclusivity. So.. Whats the point of ATT???

wow! VZW must have a different standard of Code of Business Conduct than VZ Communications. Verizon employees are to NEVER to degrade a competitor in public.

SBC and Bell South bought AT&T wireless and changed the name to AT&T. i appreciate AT&T. They are fantastic competition. :)

Totally agree, there is absolutely no reason to bash AT&T, the network and consumer reports speak for themselves.

+1 for Att upgrading its network to 7.2 data streaming!

14. remixfa

Posts: 14605; Member since: Dec 19, 2008

jrcrow, they havent upgraded anything... they have "announced" that they "plan" to upgrade the rest of their 3g to 7.2. Tmobile has already upgraded and surpased them... lol.

no, att has upgraded to 7.2

19. remixfa

Posts: 14605; Member since: Dec 19, 2008

no, go reread the article. they are "planning to upgrade all of their 3g to 7.2 SOMETIME late this year" do they have 7.2 already? yes, in like 5 square miles of the TMOBILE just upgraded ALL of their 3g to 7.2, giving them a huge footprint lead over ATTs 7.2 By the time ATT upgrades all their towers, Tmobile will be almost done upgrading to 21, and VZW will be well into LTE upgrades wich is leagues ahead. So, again, whats the point of ATT ? :)

Sprint is also upgrading to 4g

Sprint's "4g" aka Wimax is the fastest so far. But in comparison, when verizon's LTE starts to go live, its will be like 7G. And im not making these figures up people. Wimax = 5mbps download. LTE = 30mbps and for those who are COMPLETLY out of touch with anything technical, consider this; COMCAST is the largest and fastest cable interent home/buisness provider - their internet acheives speeds of about 12-17 mbps and you have to be connected to a modem via wifi hotspot or LAN cable, The implications of LTE providing 30mpbs OVER THE AIR are mindblowing...

YouLostTheGame thanks i must be a good tool making over 80 again this year. Mateo8326 is a tool because AT&T is losing money every time the sell an i-phone look at there contract with apple.

whose cares about the iphone if att wanted it still they would cough up the money iphone is old news now, but wait and see everyone it not who gets it first it who can hold up in the end. But you guys keep downing ATT you will see mock this statment here lol


Posts: 26; Member since: Jan 07, 2010

You must be in a killer location to be making over 80 after tax with our new commission structure this year, including the return rate BS they just started. 80 a year in this biz was more like 2 years ago or even 3 lol. what region are u in?

Posts: 14605; Member since: Dec 19, 2008

I would have made 70 this year in a "slow" vzw store had i not been part of the layoffs late in the summer. I might make 15 at tmobile.. :(

Premium Retailers have better commission structures and better hourly pay. He may work for one of them. In my company there are quite a few of us that average 60-90 a year. It is do-able!

LTE shows much promise in the celluar realm. The technology will allow for some of the fastest speeds seen in wireless data transmission to this day. We are talking HD video streaming, video calls and unbelievably fast mobile broadband for computers. Verizon has committed to bringing this service to the majority of it's users by the end of this year. As with the implimentation of their EVDO network back in 2006, Verizon did a great job getting that done in a timely manner. Lets hope they can get it done.
