Verizon just announced four new Android phones take advantage of their 4G LTE network and now we are learning more details of their network expansion.

The initial deployment included 38 markets and went live in December. Now our friends at Droid Life have discovered an additional 49 markets that are scheduled for the first half of this year. Verizon is expected to cover 140 markets by the end of 2011, so another 50 cities should be announced for the second half of this year.
