    Default Will Storm 2 work on Verizon 4G rollout in 2010?

    Was wondering about this since a Nov release of S2 is immenient and Verzion rollout of LTE in 25-35 markets in 2010.

    Thanks

    That would mean it would have:

    * UMTS/HSPA: 2100 MHz
    * North America: 850 MHz GSMŪ/GPRS networks
    * North America: 1900MHz GSM/GPRS networks
    * Europe/Asia Pacific: 1800MHz GSM/GPRS networks
    * Europe/Asia Pacific: 900MHz GSM/GPRS networks
    * Dual-Band: 800/1900 MHz CDMA/Ev-DO networks
    * North America: 700 MHz LTE
    * WiFi

    I bet it doesn't have an LTE radio seeing that there has been very little buzz about Qualcomm having any LTE chips ready to go to production any time soon.

    Agreed, Qualcomm is behind in producing their LTE chipset, they won't have samples ready until end of Q3 2009. The hardware for Storm 2 was completed in 2008 so it definitely doesn't support LTE. Storm 3 is probably when we will see support for LTE since the hardware specs might not be finalized yet, either way it won't happen until Qualcomm has its chipset ready, they are the biggest player in the multi-mode communications sector.

    The 4G rollout will not impact the CMDA 3G network, all 3G phones will continue to work for a long time. 25-35 of the largest markets will be on LTE by the end of next year but VZW won't have a full 4G network in place until 2014.

    Word is LTE is being rushed for a Q1 launch in select markets. So maybe the full rollout will be sooner than that.

    More like mid-2012 at best. Qualcomm said back in April the MSM 8960 LTE multi-mode chip for handsets probably wouldn't be ready for vendor sampling until 2011. Tack on 12-18 months to that for integration and product testing. Wouldn't shock me if even a third gen Storm is not LTE capable.

    I doubt the storm 2 will be a 4G phone. Not only is 4G not out yet, but its unlike RIM to be ahead of the curve like that (remember how long it took for them to adopt 3G?) Don't worry the storm 2 will still work with 3G. Its not like they turn off 3G for 4G. Both will be operational for awhile, and 3G will slowly be replaced over years as 4G expands

    Exactly...the infrastructure will slowly start creeping into existence over the next 12 months (on the part of the cellular carriers), but realistically it will likely be at least 3 years before you can walk into a carrier store and buy an LTE enabled phone.

    Probably Storm 3/4 will have LTE.
