CES 2011: Bug Labs Launches A Verizon 4G Module

Building a cell phone in your garage? Good news: it can do 4G.

Back in September of last year, Bug Labs added support for Verizon’s 3G network to their lineup of plug-and-play(-and-hack), module-based device building system. This morning at CES, they’ve kicked things up a notch with the debut of a brand spankin’ new 4G Modem module, pre-certified for use on Verizon’s LTE network.

So, what does this mean for you? In a nutshell: if your plan for world domination requires a home-made device with a 4G connection, you’ll be able to build at your leisure without having to go through Verizon’s certification process at every step.
