There's this leaked Best Buy document making the rounds today that mentions activation of Verizon LTE devices "coming into the market this fall." That's exciting stuff -- though it'd be a little more exciting if we definitely were talking about Android devices.
We've been saying on the Android Central Podcast for weeks now that we're expecting LTE data cards to roll out before we see LTE-capable smartphones. (That said, yes, Verizon started pimping 4G today.) Would we love to see LTE phones by the end of the year? Heck, yeah. Is it reasonable that we'll see them "this fall"? Probably not, folks. And that's what a trusted source is still telling us. Plain and simple, no Verizon LTE phones in 2010. We'll just have to make do with speedy data cards if and when they happen.
