CES: Verizon Wireless to showcase OnStar running on its 4G network

According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Verizon Wireless is expected to show off several devices (at CES) powered by Google software for its new 4G network, underscoring the importance of the two companies’ relationship even as speculation mounts that Verizon will get to offer the iPhone this year.

The report states that the Verizon stand will also feature a car from General Motors that has an OnStar navigation system powered by its 4G network.

Existing OnStar systems run on the carrier’s older network.

Beyond the new hardware, Verizon Wireless plans to show off applications specifically designed for the faster network, including more video services and multiplayer online gaming.
