"LG Revolution combines the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network with the power of Android 2.2 to deliver a blazingly fast experience," said Marni Walden, vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless. "The introduction of the first 4G LTE smartphone from LG is a positive addition to our robust lineup of powerful smartphones."

The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network, launched in December 2010, is the fastest, most advanced 4G network in the United States, providing speeds up to 10 times faster than Verizon Wireless’ 3G network.  Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network currently reaches one-third of all Americans, with plans to expand the network to the company’s entire 3G coverage area over the next three years.

"Being an innovation and technology leader has always been a top priority for LG and we are thrilled to unveil a new level of smartphone capabilities and features," said Tim O’Brien, vice president of marketing for LG Mobile. "LG Revolution marks the beginning of new technologies and products that will complement on-the-go consumers looking for high-speed connectivity in one compact device."

LG Revolution will be on display at CES in Verizon Wireless’ booth (#35216 in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center) and in LG’s booth (#8205 in the Central Hall).
