"If there was any doubt that 2011 would be the year of 4G smartphones, this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) trashed that doubt with demos of some very hot 4G devices.

"Topping the list of those phones were such products as the HTC Thunderbolt, the LG Revolution, the Motorola Atrix 4G, and the Samsung Vibrant.

"What those devices have in common are: an Android OS, meaning that more than 200,000 apps are available through Android Market, the app store run by Google; Bluetooth - at least v 2.1; Wi-Fi (802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n); USB 2.0; storage of 32 GB; a 3.6-inch touchscreen with 480 X 800 pixels, or better; and a camera with a minimum resolution of 5 megapixels. With the exception of the EVO Shift -- which costs $199 with a two-year contract -- no prices have been set yet for this crop of 4G Android handsets."
