A page describing the various Windows Phone 7 status icons on the new Microsoft Windows phone website reveals an interesting tidbit about the WinP7 mobile operating system, "it already has support for both of the popular 4G cellular network standards -- LTE (technically a 3.9G technology) and WiMAX." Of course it's up to OEMs to produce 4G-enabled WP7 devices (and carriers to sell them), but at least this gives some credibility to the earlier rumors of a LTE version of Dell Lightning and a WiMAX version of an LG WP7 phone.

With native support for these next-generation standards in the v1 version of the OS suggests that we could see such devices sooner than later. Bring on the 100Mbit data rates.
