Motorola’s First LTE handset on Verizon in 2011 – Your Ideas?

We recently brought you details on Motorola’s upcoming Android Honeycomb tablet which will finally make it’s official appearance at CES 2011, but now we have a few bits of information regarding Motorola’s participation in Verizon’s 4G LTE plans.

It is no secret that Motorola and Verizon have formed a very close partnership through 2010, culminating in the great sucesses in the lineup of Droid handsets which are still considered some of the best on the market now.

However, Verizon is now looking towards their new 4G LTE network and it is no surprise to hear that Motorola will also be part of their plans. As reported from Engadget, Verizon’s chief operating officer John Stratton has hinted that Motorola will be the first manufacturer to build a device which is 4G LTE compatible.

He didn’t mention any specific handsets, but Engadget believe that the rumored Motorola Olympus is likely to be a blueprint for a device on Verizon, since the Olympus is thought to be heading to AT&T first of all. We wrote a piece on the Motorola ‘Etna’ which you may want to check out.

What are your thoughts on Motorola having the first LTE device on Verizon? Are you a bit disappointed that HTC hasn’t got the nod or are you satisfied with Motorola?
