Pantech Apache Coming to Verizon With LTE Support, At the FCC For Now

LTE has been in the news once before these days, with rumors about a Samsung Galaxy S II follow-up with this kind of connectivity supported popping up this week. Now we have a Pantech model that takes the same route… I’m talking about the Pantech Apache, that’s just hit the FCC with Verizon LTE.

Codenamed Pantech ADR8995 or simply Apache, the phone is being toyed with these days at the FCC, showing support for CDMA and LTE band 13. WiFi and Bluetooth certification have already been taken care of for the Pantech Apache. This model is supposed to be the second 4G unit to come to Verizon in the following months, following Droid Bionic.

Sadly no other specs were detailed, but since this is Pantech, we expect moderate hardware and a cool price to go with that. Is this the beginning of the ascension of LTE as a technology for the masses? Let’s see the contracts first…
