We're being fed some information on Verizon's launch strategy for its first commercial 4G markets
today; the bad news is that it's looking like you'll have to wait until the holiday shopping season, but the good
news is that they should have a surprisingly decent footprint at launch. Specifically, we're hearing that two data cards (presumably including that LG VL600 USB stick
) will kick things off on November 15 with over 30 markets around the country -- including biggies like New York, LA, Chicago, and Philadelphia -- alongside ten airports, perfect for you globetrotters on layovers. It was nice little exclusive period there, wasn't it, Sprint?
