Well, well, well… isn’t it interesting that following the “Any Devices, Any Apps” announcement, Verizon has chosen LTE for their 4G network platform? These two announcements in combination could have a tremendous impact on the U.S. cellular market in a few ways.First off, Verizon and Vodafone (part owner of VZW) would use the same network technologies which should allow for leveraging technical strategies. Secondly, this signals a move away from CDMA for Verizon, and not with a stop-gap of CDMA with SIM cards. Then you have the benefit as a Verizon customer to have your phone work many more places in the world, since a majority of coverage areas are GSM-based. Good times are coming people…trials are planned for LTE testing in 2008, which coincides with those “network technical specifications” that Verizon promises with their new open platform initiative.
