Qualcomm today announced its fifth-generation of Gobi embedded modem chipsets. The most significant advancement of these new modems is that they will support multiple LTE network frequencies, as well as FDD and TDD type LTE networks. The MDM9615 and MDM9215 are also backward compatible with HSPA+ and EVDO 3G networks. Though these chips will target devices such as laptops, hotspots, and convertibles, the new Gobi architecture also supports Google's Android operating system and can be paired with Qualcomm's SnapDragon mobile processors. Qualcomm said that companies such as Huawei, Novatel Wireless, Option, Sierra Wireless, and ZTE will offer the first wave of Gobi 5 devices in various form factors and world markets.

Will Gobi 5 cover all 36 LTE Freq.'s?

The press release is kind of ambiguous. Almost every country has a different set of frequencies. Although currently AT&T and VZW use the 700 range, AT&T is 704-746 and VZW is 746-787. Does this Gobi 5 scan all and let you use the one you want? Also, What major equp. Manufactures are using Gobi 5 in new Handsets? Nokia? Moto? LG? Sammy? Is there another chip like this out there? Alot of questions...

Uh oh!

Looks like this eliminates the excuse of carriers like AT&T and Verizon phones being incompatible with the the smaller carriers. Let's hear the next excuse from the behemoths.
