Verizon Trademarks Reveal LTE "Video Messaging" Handsets?

Verizon apparently has applied for trademarks relating to"'video messaging" devices. That tends to suggest some new handsets will be brought to market for the LTE network that have video messaging as a lead application.

Though all smartphones are, by definition, multi-purpose devices, it has been clear for some time that devices can be differentiated by highlighting and optimizing a particular lead app. BlackBerry arguable was an "email" optimized device. Other devices have been optimized for Facebook, social network updates or Skype use.

It now appears video messaging could be another of the lead apps.
