What does Verizon plan to show us in Las Vegas next month? Verizon

Verizon Wireless confirmed via its Twitter account today that it will launch new Android devices with support for its growing 4G LTE network at CES 2011 .

We don't know exactly which devices the carrier will showcase at its January 6 press event, but potential handsets include the Droid Incredible HD or a Verizon-branded LG Optimus 2X .

It's also possible that we could see a Motorola tablet that has been getting a lot of attention lately. Moto recently began teasing a new Honeycomb-based tablet for the conference, which ought to be the same unit demonstrated by Andy Rubin at Dive Into Mobile. With a little over two weeks before the annual conference kicks off, the chance of leaked pictures and videos increases. Also, Verizon's COO, John Stratton, said this week that the carrier has "LTE smartphones on the horizon" and that "Motorola will be right there."

Are you looking forward to a specific phone or tablet from Verizon? What are you hoping to see unveiled at CES?
