    Default L-Series devices LTE Capable?

    I can't remember where I came across it but I believe I saw somewhere that the new BlackBerry L Series phones would be HSPA. From the last rumored specs I saw I didn't see LTE in the chipset and recently it got me thinking. There would have to be an LTE component if Verizon is supporting BB10 correct as they can not support HSPA? I don't imagine they would make a CDMA phone for Verizon.

    So even though the specs we saw seemed legit it is unlikely that those are final correct?

    Just kinda seeing if anyone else noticed that or has info i'm missing.

    L-Series will be fully LTE capable. You saw, as did I, an article from the UK where they are not fully LTE enabled, discuss BB10 from a HSPA+ perspective.

    Simply a function of geography and not capability.

    Awesome, I thought so. Thanks for remembering the article, i read so many (i'm too excited for BB10) that they get lost in the shuffle!

    There will be multiple versions of the L. London will not do LTE and be HSPA+. Laguna will be CDMA/LTE for Verizon/Sprint. Lisbon will be HSPA+/LTE. No reason releasing a LTE phone in a market that won't get LTE any time soon, and that is the market that the London will cover.

    So do we know if the Verizon version will be a world phone?

    Do Verizon release any premium models that are not labelled as "world phones"?
