Nvidia's LTE Modem Gets Thumbs Up for AT&T

Nvidia has announced the the company's Icera 410 LTE data modem for tablets and clamshells has been tested and approved for use on AT&T's 4G LTE network. Though Nvidia didn't mention anything about Tegra 3 compatibility in its release, the company has since revealed that the Icera 410's approval really does mean we're one step closer to seeing quad-core Tegra 3 devices running on AT&T.

Over the last few months we've seen several Tegra 3 devices lose their quad-core chip in favor of LTE-compatible dual-core solutions. However, that will soon be a thing of the past thanks to the Icera 410 validation. The company reportedly told Know Your Cell that Tegra 3 will be getting full 4G LTE support with Icera 410 sometime later this year. Nothing more precise than that for now, but we'll keep our ears to the ground for more information on that front.

Nvidia's Icera 410 modem offers offers 4G LTE at category 2 data rates (up to 50 Mbps) as well as 4G HSPA+, 3G and 2G compatibility.

    It would been nice to have seen this earlier, as my HTC One X for AT&T would be dual core. Though the snapdragon is fabricated on the 28nm while the Tegra 3 is still 40nm. Efficiency my friend, efficiency.

    Totally offtopic:

    Anyone else getting annoyed at the IT pro articles? The fact that you can't comment on them and they frequently resemble advertising.
    Especially as the same article keeps getting bumped to the front page (toshiba tech support).

    Is there any way to turn them off?

    No, that's how long your battery will last.

    What's the point of a modem that can use up your monthly bandwidth allowance in a few minutes ?
