Confirmed via Twitter, CEO to give keynote

While there have been multiple rumors and leaked photos of Verizon's upcoming LTE handsets, the nation's largest carrier confirmed that it would unveil some Android-based LTE devices at the upcoming CES Conference.

The following message was posted on Verizon's Twitter account yesterday afternoon: 

Jan. 6 at #CES: #Android and #LTE - could it be like peanut butter and chocolate? YUM!

Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg is scheduled to deliver a CES keynote address on January 6, and many predict the LTE unveiling will begin then. It's possible he will also elaborate on his prediction that LTE may one day supplement or replace traditional wired cable services. 

CES runs from January 6-9.

@I am really #sick of these #tweets and the excessive use of #hashtags because it's really #annoying when @you use @them all the #time! Catch @my #drift?!?

In all seriousness though... who didn't see this coming. Verizon has already announced their LTE network, so it only makes sense they would unveil devices at CES...

Oh, and Goldmann Sachs says they are going to unveil the iPhone 4 for Verizon, and it's LTE ready! I heard it from my aunt's neighbor's cat!

RT @ LordSojar yeah me too #annoyed

*it may not be accurate as I don't spend much time, if any, on Twitter (I am a racer but I hate checking up on people).

It's already been known for quite some time that Verizon will be releasing LTE devices after Christmas and there have been sightings of a new LTE phone HTC Incredible HD. Knowing Apple's past would they even include LTE on their first iPhone for VZW or do we wait for 2nd Gen?

I thought the Incredible HD wansn't LTE, but if so, would make it quite interesting. Timing makes sense as well (no UI pun intended).

Hopefully the hardware will improve on horrendous battery life and poor graphics performance. Snapdragon has left a very bad taste in my mouth.

Virtually everything will "someday" happen in the tech world. However, LTE and WiMax will NOT replace wired services. LTE-Advanced and WiMax 2 may someday replace wired services.

I doubt even LTE-A and WiMax 2 will replaced wired services.

The fiber (not equipment) but fiber Verizon is laying is rated for 10G and that is pure wavelength. currently they have it running a mere 1G and 3 wavelengths multiplexed. No reason that eventually that can't be 10G and dozens of wavelengths multiplexed.

wireless "suffers" from the fact that it is shared bandwidth, has a magnitude higher noise than even coax wire, and operated on very limited frequencies.

While wireless may displace some wired-only users wired will always be able to offer higher speeds and lower prices.
