Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile expected to showcase 4G at CES

By Hayley Tsukayama

As vendors set up at the Consumer Electronics Show in Los Vegas, everyone is speculating about what gadgets and services the attending companies will show. When it comes to 4G, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile all are expected to showcase products made for faster networks. Most of the gadgets will be smartphones, but Verizon is expected to announce an Android-based tablet as well.

According to a press release, Verizon said it will debut more than 40 products and services that "take advantage of the fast speeds and low latency" of its LTE network. It is also expected to show its first 4G phone, rumored to be called the HTC Thunderbolt.

For its part, Sprint is expected to announce a new handset, the HTC Evo Shift. Phone pictures and specs are circulating this morning after Walmart prematurely listed the smartphone, which is expected to officially launch at the end of this month.

T-Mobile also has 4G plans for CES. T-Mobile's Senior Director of Engineering Mark McDiarmid told All Things Digital that the company is "big on Android, big on faster 4G speeds and big on 4G devices including tablets."
