These new 4G devices are—get this—1G faster than your old 3G phone!
For Verizon: 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot
The credit-card-size Verizon MiFi 4510L 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot works like a wireless router, sucking up a 4G signal and pumping it back out as wi-fi that any laptop or tablet can use to hop online at broadband-like speeds. Dear hotel and airport Internet fees: You’re fired!

For AT&T: Samsung Infuse 4G
The Android-powered Samsung Infuse 4G features a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED screen-- an almost-tablet-size display that brings the furrowed brows of avian anger into frightening detail.

For Sprint: HTC EVO 3D
If the HTC EVO 3D was just a phone with a 1.2 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon chip, it’d still be one of the fastest around. But the real show-stopping comes from its 4.3-inch glasses-free 3D screen (you know, like the Nintendo 3DS), which lets you watch 3D footage—or take your own using the built-in camera—sans specs.

For T-Mobile: LG G-Slate Tablet
Behold: the first 3D 4G tablet you can buy. Sort of. While T-Mobile’s LG G-Slate tablet packs a pair of five-megapixel cameras that can soak up 3D footage, its screen can only play it back through old-school red-and-blue glasses—a tech that, like Brett Favre, just won’t stay retired.
