Verizon Wireless is expected to launch its femtocell offering later this month with a device appearing in Verizon stores and online starting Jan. 25 for $250. Called "Wireless Network Extender," the femtocell is reportedly able to provide up to 5,000 square feet of CDMA coverage and supports up to three simultaneous mobile phone calls. It will use built-in GPS functionality to verify that it's not being used outside of authorized locations.
