When an LTE phone will launch.
Verizon will announce it’s first LTE-capable phones at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in January. In the Q&A they clarified that we would be seeing an LTE smartphone “by” mid-2011, but not necessarily “in” mid-2011.
We’ll update you with more as or if it comes.
I’ve been in the sales portion of this business for a long time. I’ve worked with irate customers. I’ve gone through bills with a microscope. I’ve seen computer glitches, and I’ve seen user errors. I’ve seen irresponsible parents, and I’ve seen irresponsible spouses. I’ve experienced a multitude of different scenarios, most of them not very pretty.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
