Verizon 4G (LTE) Handset in 2011: Maybe iPhone 5G

There were many reports that cell phone carriers such as Verizon would have a 4G ready handset this year, but we have now heard that the first cell phone working on the Verizon LTE network will be sometime in the middle of 2011 — but will it be the iPhone 5G?

Please do not be confused by what we mean by 5G, we know or assume that the iPhone 4G will be launched this year — this only means that it is the 4th-generation version of the Apple smartphone. The 5G will be the 5th-generation and there are many indications that Verizon will have it.

We had hoped to see a Verizon iPhone in 2010, this is looking less likely — but an iPhone running on a 4G network will be very welcome. LTE stands for Long Term Evolution and is the next step in offering fast wireless mobile data — some markets will get this new technology by the end of the year.

A recent article in the Wall Street Journal explains that LTE is very-much needed, lets just hope that they get it right — we do not want the same trouble as we get with 3G.
