Verizon ICD Ultra LTE Tegra 2 tablet announced

Posted January 10, 2010 in , , , ,

Tablet manufacturer ICD are doing an excellent job of matching their touchscreen products to carriers right now, as hot on the heels of their T-Mobile Vega partnership comes word of an LTE collaboration with Verizon.  The carrier has announced that it will be offering the ICD Ultra – a 7-inch Android slate based on NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 chipset – with a Motorola 4G modem for high-speed LTE connectivity.

Of course, right now it’s all just in the testing stage, since Verizon aren’t beginning the full-scale rollout of their LTE network until later this year.  The carrier expects 4G to be available in 25 to 30 markets by the end of 2010.

As for the ICD Ultra itself, that’s capable of 1080p HD video playback thanks to the Tegra 2 chipset and has both WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.1 if you wander outside of an LTE area and need to go hotspot hunting.  ICD initially reckoned you’ll see 4hrs use out of a single charge; the Verizon PR only says you’ll get hours of YouTube HD streaming before the battery expires.  No word on pricing, availability or anything else at present.
