Verizon Wireless on Tuesday denied reports that it was in talks with Clearwire regarding use of the WiMax provider's spectrum in heavily trafficked markets. Verizon CEO Dan Mead said that the companies were not holding discussions about spectrum usage and that there was no need for any such deal. "We have a very defined spectrum policy," said Mead. "We are going to cover 185 markets by the end of this year (with LTE). We are very pleased with where we are at." Mead also said that the LTE leader plans to debut six more LTE devices before the end of the year, taking the total number from the current 14 to 20. The new devices will include smartphones, tablets, and data cards. Mead said to look out for LTE-related news in the coming weeks.

Educated guess: 2 more LTE phone

Considering that about one-third of those 14 LTE devices are actually handsets (Thunderbolt, Charge, Revolution, Breakout, and the Bionic) ... it's probably safe to say that one-third of those new devices will actually be phones. Most of those devices will probably be tablets, maybe a netbook.

Known LTE handsets that will be ready for launch this year: Samsung Nexus Prime and Samsung Statoshpere. That is all ☹️
