Even though Verizon rolled out its 4G LTE service early last month, CES was wireless broadband's coming out party. Along with unveiling a handful 4G-capable devices, Verizon approached General Motors' OnStar division to create a rolling showcase of what a wireless broadband-equipped vehicle could be capable of.
