NVIDIA just announced that its Icera 410 LTE multimode modem has been approved to work properly on AT&T’s 4G LTE network. “Validation with AT&T is an achievement that paves the way for NVIDIA Icera-powered LTE devices on the AT&T network through this year and next,” Stan Boland, senior vice president of Mobile Communications at NVIDIA said in a statement. The chipset offers 4G LTE support at up to 50Mbps and also supports AT&T’s 4G HSPA+, 3G and 2G networks.
NVIDIA has already proven that its Icera modem technology, it acquired Icera last June, plays well with its Tegra 2 processors. The ZTE Mimosa X, for example, already uses both chips. Hopefully this means we’ll hear more news around Tegra 3 quad-core devices with 4G LTE support on AT&T’s network in the near future, too.
