Big Red won't be launching any 4G smartphones this year, but we can expect to see their first next-gen mobiles hit in January 2011. IntoMobile reports that a "trusted source" has informed them that Atlanta & Athens, Georgia, Dallas, Denton, Ft. Worth & Weatherford, Texas and a bunch of east Massachusetts will see Verizon's 4G LTE network go live this year.

Other (so far un-named) cities will see 4G in 2010 as well, for a total of around 115 million to 120 million people covered. Two or three 4G dongles will launch around November, and we can expect to see our first Verizon 4G smartphones announced in January, with a launch then or shortly thereafter. Their LTE network will spread across Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi over the rest of the year.
Verizon's 3G plan is expected to remain unlimited, while their 4G plan will be capped. Customers who get the 4G plan will have unlimited 3G access, and a cap on their 4G of (likely) around 5 GB per month. Expect to pay around $30/month for that plan.
