    Verizon Wireless CEO Dan Mead continued to leave
    everyone guessing about the connectivity of the Apple iPhone 5 when he told the Wall Street Journal today that Apple will eventually produce
    mobile products enabled to run on Big Red's LTE 4G
    network. Currently, the Apple iPhone 4 and the
    iPad connect to Verizon's 3G pipelines using the
    carrier's EV-DO Rev. A connectivity. Mead told the financial newspaper that, "You'll see
    more coming from Apple on LTE. They understand
    the value proposition of LTE and I feel very
    confident that they are going to be a part of it."
    While your thoughts about Apple and LTE might
    jump immediately to the iPhone 5, no particular product was mentioned by Mead and the Verizon
    executive did not bring up any timeframe when all of this might happen. There is speculation about whether or not the next version of the Apple iPhone will be LTE enabled. Apple has said that they had left LTE out of the
    Verizon version of the iPhone 4 because to do
    otherwise would have required a re-design of the
    product that Apple did not want to get involved
    with at the time. As for speculation that iPhone 4 sales were
    sluggish at Verizon, CEO Mead refuted that by
    saying that the carrier sold more units of the Apple
    iPhone 4 during the handset's launch than any
    other device in the carrier's history. Mead also said
    that Verizon will report precise iPhone sales during the release of its next quarterly earnings report.
