CES: How about a 100 Mbps laptop card? LG’s got ’em

LAS VEGAS — Look out, Clearwire.

LG’s showing off some amazing hardware for the LTE mobile broadband network competing with Clearwire’s WiMax network.

A prototype LTE laptop modem on display in its CES booth downloads data at 100 megabits per second and uploads 50 Mbps. It’s the red, external device next to the laptop:

LTE networks don’t yet support its technology, but the company is expecting to release a dual-mode LTE/CDMA version in July that will download at 70 Mbps and upload at 20 Mbps on Verizon’s LTE network rolling out this year.

It also hands off automatically when users move from LTE to CDMA networks.

LG developers said the hardware is a prototype and the final design will be different than the white device left of this laptop:
