Verizon carries on with open development initiative, publishes LTE specs
Verizon's commitment to keeping its network open for anyone who'd like to make a device that can use it transcends the network's technology, apparently, as they've now published "initial" specifications for building compliant LTE goodies. Naturally, would-be applicants will have to wait for a live network for this to actually work, but the carrier wants to encourage everyone to get an early start in preparation for a planned 2010 commercial network launch in a handful of markets. The publication of the specs leads up to a May 13 web conference where interested parties will have an opportunity to get more information and share their opinions on the process -- so do your homework, read up, and get ready.
