Verizon Communications (VZ) will unveil a new Android smartphone and a tablet with 4G-network capability at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month, an InformationWeek story predicts, citing a hint in an official Tweet from Verizon and confirmation from a Verizon component supplier.

Verizon will likely launch the products during a press conference, scheduled Jan. 6, to discuss its Long Term Evolution, or 4G, system, according to the InformationWeek story. The new devices could help the company gain market share in the rapidly growing smartphone and tablet-computer markets.
