Verizon lifts curtain on first notebooks to rock its 4G LTE network
Verizon lifted the curtain on the HP Pavilion dm1-3010nr and the Compaq CQ10-688nr - one of the first to run on Big Red's fast 4G LTE network. The romantically named notebooks will come at 11.6 inches and 10.1 inches, respectively.

Well, no doubt that we could use bigger screens for Verizon's up to 12 Mbps speeds. In fact, the network is on par or even faster than what you can get on a traditional Wi-Fi network. The HP Pavilion dm1 is the more powerful of the two and will allow streaming 1080p HD video thanks to the Microsoft DirectX 11 capable GPU, integrated into the main processing unit. The notebook has sweet 9.5 hours of battery life and 320 gigs of storage. The dm1-3010nr has entertainment and navigation well covered with an HDMI port, Dolby Advanced Audio as well as a GPS unit.

Compaq's CQ10-688nr is a sleek 10.1-inch balanced performer with an Intel Atom N455 CPU and a 6-cell battery capable of delivering up to 8.5 hours of battery life. Both laptops can be turned into mobile hotspots for sharing the network.

Never thought I'd see a netbook turn into a MiFi. Kinda cool I guess.
