Within Google's (NASDAQ:GOOGL) recently unveiled Nexus lineup, two of the three devices feature cellular connectivity -- but it isn't 4G LTE. That move shows that the search giant is interested in broadening the reach and compatibility of the devices in international markets. Domestic devices all but require LTE to be competitive in the high-end market, including Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 5 or Nokia's (NYSE:NOK) Lumia 920, for starters. The U.S. market is more focused on LTE than much of the rest of the world, so for now Google's choice to leave it out may be fine. However, in the long run, Big G is going to have to figure out a way to add LTE connectivity.
