Verizon Picks LTE for 4G Wireless Broadband

I have blogged about 4G technologies before. Now, in this item, Om Malik reports that Verizon has made its choice. He ties it to Verizon's recent announcement that they are opening their network:

The LTE evolution negates the GSM vs. CDMA debate, and it also promises global connectivity. In a recent chat, AT&T Mobility President & CEO Ralph de la Vega said that his company was going to migrate to LTE as the 4G solution. In such a scenario, you and I can then switch between the two services without worrying too much about handsets.

What does this mean for WiMAX?

Update (2007-11-30): CNet has a bit more to say about this in this article.
