Verizon Wireless today confirmed that four of its 4G LTE smartphones will be able to roam onto the GSM-based 3G networks abroad once updated with new software. The company said in a statement, "Customers will see a notification on their device when the software update is available for their device. After the software update, customers will be able to take their smartphone overseas and use voice service in more than 220 countries and receive data in more than 205 countries." The devices include the HTC Rezound, and the Motorola Droid RAZR, RAZR MAXX, and the Droid 4. The update is scheduled to be delivered later this year, though specific timing wasn't provided.
