It's about time Motorola got its act together and started upgrading the Verizon Wireless Xoom from 3G to 4G LTE. It's only been ten months since the device launched.
And that could be vice versa too, with Verizon Wireless stating that their phones won't "be compatible on other LTE networks in the US," owing to their "different frequencies." That may sound strange as both Verizon and AT&T use the 700MHz band, but there's little cross-over apparently, with Verizon using the…
According to FierceWireless, Verizon has confirmed that they'll be getting rid of their unlimited data plans in favor of tiered pricing plans. Starting July 7th it'll be $10 for 75MB, $30 for 2GB, $50 for 5GB, and $80 for 10GB.
Expected around June on Verizon Wireless, the Motorola Droid 3 will be a smart-snappin' 8MP handset with 960 x 540 qHD screen resolution, dual-core processor, and HDMI-out port. The jury is still out on whether it'll be LTE-compatible, however.

Apple's said to be exploring sending out over-the-air updates for iPhones, starting with the iOS 5 update in fall.

Today's October 28th, which means Verizon Wireless has begun selling Wi-Fi versions of the iPad, with MiFi mobile hotspot dongle packages on offer starting at $630 for the 16GB model.
Live in an unfortunately located apartment or rural area (or any other cellular phantom zone)? Verizon will let you turn your net connection into 40 feet of 3G. This is still, however, a pricy fix for bad service.
We've known for a while that Verizon's tiered data pricing was coming soon, but now we've got a supposed date when you can kiss the unlimited data buffet goodbye: October 28th. But all's not lost for smartphone owners.
You don't need the R2-D2 Droid phone to download this app, but for full credibility I'd suggest all owners of that phone fork out the $3 it costs. In fact, any Verizon customer with an Android phone should pay up.
