Verizon 4G LTE Modems: Macs Left Out

Gigaom:

[…] The LG VL600, Verizon’s LTE launch USB modem device, is only compatible with Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7. Another modem, the Pantech UML290, will be available soon after launch, but it doesn’t appear to be Mac-compatible either […]

Not good news, but I’m waiting for smartphones that make use of Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks, and in particular an iPhone 4S. A tethered iPhone 4S would be a far more elegant solution than a USB modem: stick it to the side of your MacBook and instantly it becomes aesthetically less pleasing.
