Verizon Tips LTE Specs: Think Data, Not Phones

Source: PC Magazine
Verizon Wireless today put out their first round of specs for their upcoming 4G LTE network, and they want to remind folks: "Initially, Verizon Wireless will be providing packet data service over the Verizon Wireless LTE 3GPP Band 13 network." That means the first LTE devices will be more about tapping into LTE's 8-12 Mbps data speeds than about making phone calls.

The specs describe basic requirements to connect to Verizon's upcoming network, and they're pretty much unreadable unless you have a degree in electrical engineering. But a quick perusal of the specs reveals two more interesting tidbits: IPv6 will be required, and support for Verizon's 3G CDMA network will not.
