This is a bit confusing. How Samsung can have an 4G LTE baseband - backward compatible all the way down to 2G -- based on CEVA DSP? Who developed that baseband - CEVA or Samsung? Many thanks

The big shoes that are about to drop regarding LTE are Verizon by the end of this year and AT&T in 2011. Combine those with Sprint on WIMAX and today's FCC vote on white spaces and it looks like serious wireless data is finally going to happen. Maybe the carriers will finally stop whining about their customers actually using their networks. Larry M.

Because they produced a semi-smart LTE-based phone for MetroPCS - a wireless provider with 1.7% market share and a company that loses customers at a rate more than twice that of the carriers folks normally think of? Save such big questions for important stories (like when Samsung becomes the largest cell phone maker, largest battery maker, largest TV manufacturer, and the largest semiconductor maker).

First on the semiconductor industry but also in the Product development. Is Samsung to become stronger than intel, IBM and some others? but noy only in regards the chips in the mobile phones but also in the product development arena?

Feels like Samsung kindly whipped together an LTE-enabled phone so MetroPCS could roll the presses with their LTE network scoop. Doesn't feel like the combination is going to win any converts but also [maybe] not so lame that it blackens an LTE eye.
