For right now there are just USB modems (no phones or Mifi).  Verizon’s 4G network will launch on Dec. 5 in 38 “major” metropolitan areas, including New York, Chicago, LA, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Seattle, Boston, etc.  (Sprint could take a lesson on rollout priorities having just released 4G in NYC last week, yet having Omaha covered for almost a year).  Verizon will include two plans: 5 GB for $50 per month, or 10 GB for $80 per month, both with $10/GB overage ‘fees’. (Quotes because it is the same rate as the $50/5GB plan)

It ill be interesting to see 4G Mifi iPad data plans when they come about.  Since the iPad 2 doesn’t utilize voice and will likely be a Verizon product as well, it will be a candidate to have LTE radios too.  Verizon via BGR and SAI.
