Verizon is teasing on its web site that "something is coming"

Verizon is teasing on its web site that
After making our way to Verizon’s web site, we’re greeted with the main feature of “something is coming.” And that, we can “be among the first to hear news” in regards to whatever it is they have coming to them.

Honestly folks, it might not allude to anything concretely, but there is little doubt that it has to be something about the next-generation iPad – especially when tomorrow is the big day for Apple. Less than 24 hours away until the festivities are expected to erupt, it’s pretty certain that this Verizon tease is none other for the highly anticipated next iPad.

Even though we’re curious to find out if the next iPad is indeed going to be tagged with the HD moniker, what’s more important to those Verizon customers, is whether this new version is going to be sporting good old 4G LTE connectivity. When you’re the carrier with the largest 4G LTE footprint in the US right now, it would be stupendous for them to be blessed with an iPad ready to take the airs with LTE speeds.

Needless to say, there’s an opportunity for Apple to really shine come tomorrow, but if you’d like to be the first to know exactly what’s coming, then you can simply provide your email address and hopefully get the good news as soon as possible. Either way, we’re getting close to knowing the reality of things.

Well apparently I'm not! I think it was actually a list of their devices that would receive the ICS update within this year.

Kinda dumb that they are making a big deal of it, they have a had 4G tablets for a while now. I guess that little apple really is all that matters.

Don't be upset, VZW is just playing up to the most popular devices. It will bring in the mindless who "need" an Apple product and to VZW this means more income as you get locked in for 2 years. It's all business my friend, I don't care as long as my unlimited plan is unfettered they can go after all the apple junkies they can hope to attain. Now if for some reason all the other non apple devices started to get dearer then I would have a serious problem with that...that hefty subsidy they pay is atrocious but I say it's ok until the fad wears off as things keep moving forward so quickly only so long Apple can sit on top soon everyone will have something easily usable as an iPhone and built for idiots who can't use a pc too.

I kinda hope it would be a high-end android phone like the HTC One X.

Well, I'm not happy with the current android phones from Verizon. I was gonna go with the Rezound but I want a bigger screen like 4.5"

I was thinking of that too but it doesn't have a good camera like the Rezound. That's why I wish we get a HTC One X or Galaxy sII HD.

I think it might have some thing to do with verizon-redbox deal.

How can they be teasing something when they already have the GALAXY NEXUS and it's blocking from any of us that's on AT&T or T-Mobile to get our hands on one

Why do I have the feeling that this is just going to be just another "Droid" something or "Galaxy" thing...

I doubt that it's for the next iPad.

Is that a joke? They haven't announced jack from MWC. What is Verizon trying to say? To loyal/new customers who's contract is up on all providers: "Try T-Mobile or AT&T; they are on top of it." To the much smaller market of iPad upgrade/new customers: "We got you covered!"

Shared data for family plans? Although I would guess an LTE iPad is more likely, given the pending iPad announcement from Apple.

I think it has to do with the family data plans or maybe new stupid droid with the Qwerty keyboard.

I wouldn't doubt it if it's iRelated. Verizon's been putting themselves in the same position as AT&T did when they got the iPhone - having their backsides owned by the fruit company. Having had two previous Android handsets, why would their periodic email adverts to me (based on my account history they stated) be trying to sell me on an iPhone? I'm not overtly opposed to an iDevice but that would clearly not be the device they are targetting for me. When stopping in a Verizon store when I was first eligible to upgrade the sales rep tried to steer me towards an iPhone again. (This is a story I've relayed before it sounds familiar.) I asked why I should go iPhone versus Android, Blackberry, or Windows and Brandon, whose name I will mention again, could only tell me, "Because it's iPhone. It's hot." No sale that day from me. Just this last time I was in, the iDisplays were the first displays walking in the door. Not even their electronic sign-in kiosk anymore. Plus a whole wall display set up just to demonstrate Air Play. The reps were all walking around with an iPad. A lot of the Verizon red accents had been changed to white. No Windows phones out on display at all, and a few of their higher end Androids were absent as well. They still had out the Stratosphere, the Charge, the Incredible 2, and the Droid X 2... but not the Droid Razr duo, no Rezound and only dummy units of the Galaxy Nexus and Thunderbolt. I swear, it was more like walking into an Apple Store then a Verizon store.
