Not feeling all the black and (sometimes) white Android devices out there? Well, prepare yourself, because Verizon has announced that a blue version of the Motorola Droid RAZR is on the way. Just to be clear, the only thing changing here is the color, so you'll get the same 4.3-inch display and Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS that all the other RAZRs are rocking.

Verizon has officially announced the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE, and it's everything we expected it'd be.

An 8 megapixel rear camera is on board, as well as a microSD slot that'll accept up to 32 GB of storage (although, we don't have details yet on onboard memory just yet.) Last, but certainly not least, this is the first Droid Incredible to pack a 4G LTE punch. You can pick one up in the coming weeks.

Verizon HomeFusion LTE home broadband now available nationwide

Verizon HomeFusion cantenna

Verizon Wireless is ready to capitalize on all that work its been doing building out a large LTE network with the release on its new HomeFusion LTE service. The intention here is to move away from DSL, and to also broaden its home Internet service footprint after deciding to not expand FiOS areas any further. If you're in a Verizon LTE area, you can join HomeFusion now, but it won't be cheap. Plans start at $60 per month for 10 GB of data, and go up to $120 per month for 30 GB. Any overages will result in a charge of $10 per GB.
