A 4G-enabled smartphone could be a while off for Big Red. While a WiMax phone (the HTC Supersonic) will be joining Sprint's family in a few short months, Verizon doesn't appear to be so lucky. Nexus404 reports that the earliest VZW will be able to roll out an LTE handset is next summer.

The chief technology officer at Verizon claims (via the Wall Street Journal) that they will have their first 4G phone ready 6 months earlier than previously anticipated. That's good news at least, even though we still have a year's worth of waiting to do. It could be possible that Big Red's first LTE phone will come courtesy of Apple.

Verizon is going to get some sort of iPhone at some point in the future. That much is certain. Rolling out the first LTE iPhone would be a massive coup for them. At this point though, it's all still speclation.
