Live from Verizon Wireless’ CES 2011 keynote!

Following the crazy storm of tech news that rained down from Vegas yesterday, it’s hard to believe that today is actually the official start of the 2011 Consumer Electronics show. But today is the day, and things are set to pick up right where they left off last night. Verizon Wireless CEO Ivan Seidenberg has been called on to deliver the first big keynote today, and the focus will be LTE 4G. AT&T set the ber pretty high yesterday, but Big Red still has the jump with LTE already having been deployed in several markets. So what’s in store for today? 4G modems? 4G smartphones? 4G tablets? 4G iPhones? Ok, we probably won’t see any iPhones, but hit the jump to follow the action in our live-blog. More →

Verizon Wireless introducing tiered data pricing in the next 4 to 6 months

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Verizon Wireless plans to introduce tiered data pricing in the coming months. “Verizon Communications Inc. Chief Executive Ivan Seidenberg said the company’s wireless arm expects to introduce its own form of tiered pricing, possibly over the next four to six months,” writes the WSJ. The report doesn’t specify whether Mr. Seidenberg was speaking solely about the company’s new, 4G, LTE network that is due to launch before the end of this year. The CEO went on to say — thankfully — that his company does not agree with how rival AT&T is valuing their data; referring to the tiered data plans instituted by Ma’ Bell several months ago. More on this story as it develops. More →

Is Apple starting production of 3 million CDMA iPhones in December?

Is it possible that the Apple iPhone might actually, finally be coming to the nation’s largest carrier? In a research note from Susquehanna Financial Group analyst Jeffrey Fidacara, he claims that his channel checks with Apple’s suppliers indicate that Cupertino’s finest is readying a production run of over 3 million CDMA-flavor iPhone devices in December. If you’re up on your rumors, this would coincide with reports that Apple has ordered CDMA chips from Qualcomm for December production.
