It was day two of CES and it was mobile, mobile, mobile! First up, Verizon plans to make the 4G LTE network nationwide within 3 years. The high-speed wireless access will even be available in rural areas through partnerships with local providers. Verizon hopes the network will bring advancements to health care technology, smarter homes and networked cities. In other news, Google showed off its updated Android Honeycomb operating system on the Motorola Xoom tablet. The mobile OS was redesigned from the ground up for tablet use, focusing on customization and multi-tasking. Need to check an email in the middle of a videogame? You won’t miss a beat with this lightning fast OS. And finally, AT&T has lowered the cost of the iPhone 3GS to $49 anticipating Verizon’s iPhone launch. The price requires signing up for a two-year contract of at least $39.99 a month, plus a $15 data plan. The low price may put the mobile web into many more hands.
