Verizon CEO Talks Android Tablets and LTE Phones

Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam is doing his part to rally excitement for Android phones and tablets. Big Red’s boss was recently at the Reuters Global Technology Summit where he divulged a few goodies. What kind of goodies? How about Motorola, Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics working on tablets that run off of Android?  Tablets due as early as the second half of this year.

He also went on to say that LTE-capable handsets from Motorola, HTC, and LG will be arriving between now and this time next year. The carrier expects to cover 25-30 markets later this year when they turn on the their LTE network.

These forthcoming phones and tablets will run on Verizon’s current CDMA network for the time being. Down the road, customers will be able to upgrade them so that they are compatible with the LTE network.

Fun fact: McAdam says the new network will be fast enough to download full HD movies in under a minute.
