They would need a separate LTE chip for each frequency available in the U.S., a CDMA chip, and a GSM chip that covers all the frequencies. Hard to put all that in the phone and not make it cost $900.


No, that is wrong.

Different chipsets are not required for different airlinks. Qualcomm has offered multimode 3GPP/3GPP2 (GSM/W-CDMA/CDMA1X/EV-DO/LTE) chipsets for over a year now.

And different chipsets are not required for different frequencies. That is a function of antenna design, which can be a challenge.
