Today Samsung announce the Kalmia, a new Long Term Evolution modem for mobile devices that is capable of downloading data at 100Mbps and uploading at 50Mbps. According to Samsung, the Kalmia is compliant with Release 8 of the 3GPP LTE spec. The LTE modem will be backward compatible with previous wireless data technologies. Additionally, Samsung has created an HSPA Evolution 3G baseband modem for cell phones based on Release 7 that is capable of download speeds of up to 28Mbps and upload speeds of 11.5 Mbps. Samsung expects the chips to be available for use in phones in 2010.

It's a chip

So basically it is a chip that wil be available once VZW or AT&T began shipping LTE handsets.

srsly y would u need 100MBs dl speed for a phone?

am i missing the point on this one?
I could only assume that, as the title says 'LTE MODEM for Phones'. 100Mbps would be good for tethering, but would need to be plugged into a power supply or die very quickly.
I can't imagine why anyone would need 100mbps on anything! Give me a consistant & reliable 10mbps and I'm happy.

And people need to stop differentiating between phones/smartphones and pc's, a file that someone is downloading is just that a file no...
I would use it for torrents all day long.
