NTT DoCoMo announced that it has developed a prototype multi-band power amplifier that has eight frequency bands between 700MHz and 2.5GHz. This amplifier will allow manufacturers to make phones that can contain different cellular radios, such as LTE, GSM and UMTS. Power amplifiers are what boosts cell phone's transmitting capabilities, allowing them to connect to cell towers. The new amplifier from DoCoMo is small enough that it can be used in mobile phones without increasing their size.

Go DoCoMo

Gotta give it to foreign markets. They certainly are pioneering the way for things to come.

With something like this, it will be easier for AT&T to switch to LTE when they decide to do so...
Don't hold your breath, look how AT&T developed their 3G footprint. I wouldn't be suprised if Verizon smoked them on LTE too.
