LOS ANGELES – Despite relentless speculation about the imminent support of the iPhone and iPad in the U.S., there is no plan for Verizon to support the Apple mobile devices in the "immediate future," John Johnson, a Verizon Wireless spokesperson told Beet.TV in this video interview.

The company is keen on the Android device and will introduce several new
models this year, including devices that have high quality video
recording capabilities with HDMI-like outputs.

4-G Will Come to 25-30 Markets This Year Along with Devices

Johnson says in this interview that the wireless company will introduce its 4-G network to 25-30 U.S. markets this year.   Also this year, the company will introduce devices that will be able to connect to devices, USB-connected tongles, and the like.  Verizon will introduce 4-G handsets next year, he says.

This interview took place yesterday at the Wall Street Journal's All Things Digital conference.
