Verizon Wireless (VZ, VOD), which already has a solid lead on AT&T (T) with regards to 4G LTE coverage, says its 4G network will cover 260M Americans by year's end, slightly above a prior target and well above AT&T's year-end target of 150M. The carrier also reiterates its claim it will only roll out LTE-capable smartphones from now on - one more hint that the next iPhone (AAPL) will support LTE.
