Nvidia's 4G LTE Tegra 3 Roadmap Slips a Bit

Nvidia has indicated that LTE 4G won't be available with its Tegra 3 quad-core chipset until later in the year. During the company's recent earnings call, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said that the Tegra 3 processor with a built-in LTE baseband won't be available until 2013. Further, Huang noted that the Tegra 3 processor mated to LTE basebands from other suppliers won't be ready until the third quarter at the earliest, and may not arrive in the U.S. until closer to the end of the year. The Tegra 3 is a quad-core processor with a fifth core for low-intensity tasks. It is available in the international version of the HTC One X, though that device doesn't support LTE 4G. The U.S. version of the One X uses a Qualcomm S4 Snapdragon with two cores and LTE 4G built in.

Is LTE new or something???

LTE has been in the U.S. for 17 months!!!! LTE is not new!!! Duh Nvidia & Samsung!!!
LTE is not new, but there are not too many quad-core chips out there. Quad-core technology in phones is relatively new. Considering that a 4G LTE quad-core chip will come out next year, I think that Nvidia's adapting rather quickly.
