Not a big surprise, but nice to hear. Now where's the iPhone?

We already know Verizon's CEO will be giving the keynote at next month's CES, and given all its latest talk about 4G, there was little doubt it would be showing off 4G devices, but now the company has made it official.

That's thanks to a cutely-worded Tweet on Verizon's official Twitter account, which reads:

"Jan. 6 at CES: Android and LTE - could it be like peanut butter and chocolate? YUM!"

LTE, of course, refers to Long Term Evolution, or the name of Verizon's 4G network. It's slightly different than what T-Mobile and Sprint are using for their respective, already-deployed 4G infrastructures.

It was Verizon who really became the most noteworthy player in the mobile sector in 2010. The Droid, which launched very late in 2009, took off in ways no one could have seen. Verizon, which previously had almost no namesake in the Android community, came forward to become THE defining name for Google's mobile operating system.

The company will have a lot to talk at CES, no doubt about it. The bigger thing on everyone's mind is whether or not Verizon will announce an iPhone running on its network during the show. It will have the attention of hundreds of thousands of people during the keynote presentation, so there's gotta something big if it wants to garner any sort of positive coverage.
