Verizon Racing to Complete 4G Network for Apple Tablet?

Posted by · 8471 views
Verizon may be racing to complete its LTE service in time for the Apple Tablet launch expected in early 2010.

According to a TechCrunch source, Verizon is aiming to have its LTE service ready in 20-30 markets by the first quarter of 2010. These markets were originally targeted for service by the second half of 2010.

Their source had no specific information on a Verizon/Apple deal; however, he mentioned talk of at least one dongle free product that the LTE launch was specifically geared towards.

Since AT&T has been having enough difficulty maintaining 3G network performance for the iPhone, it would make sense for Apple to seek some sort of partnership with another carrier. It would be nearly impossible for AT&T to support an additional wireless device without sacrificing quality of service.

Verizon's LTE ("Long Term Evolution") network, has performed impressively in initial tests providing transfer rates up to 60 Mbps.

The iTablet is getting closer to reality! It's coming! Apple Tablet may be launched this Christmas or possibly as early as September and might cost $800.00 with Verizon as the carrier. I honestly hope that the Apple tablet is a grand slam that goes out of the park completely. As one of the fans like me notified, I also want the Apple tablet to reach high-school and college students because with all those developers out there, I think there is a lot of potential for increasing knowledge with specialized study applications. I hope this will be another great rally for apple earnings. I will buy one of this for sure. Being a great fan of apple products I collected some good information (more than 200 sites) about Apple Tablet(News, Videos, Pics, Pre reviews, Rumors etc.,).
