While AT&T may be taking its time to move on to a 4G network, Verizon is taking the opposite approach. The company has said on previous occasions that they plan to have their 4G LTE network lit up in 25-30 markets by Q4 of this year and recently stated that they will have devices to take advantage of that speedy new network shortly thereafter. Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam has stated that Big Red won't have any 4G-ready phones until May 2011, but that there will be up to five 4G phones available at that time. It's unclear who will manufacture those devices or what operating system(s) they will run, but given Verizon's close relationship with Google and Android lately, it wouldn't come as a surprise if at least one of these 4G phones was running the Android OS.
If you can't wait until May 2011, McAdam went on to say that Verizon will be releasing tablets capable of using the new 4G network in Q4 of this year and that most of them would be Android-based.
