I think it opens up the mobile computing segment because the data rates are a huge improvement. Get ready for an expensive data plan. What could make it more interesting is when the technology expands into other areas like TV, LANs and WANs. The current parts on the market are not at the fastest 4G data rate. Later this year the better faster cheaper chips will come out and then the market will start to take off.

Yeah, perhaps, but so what? The LTE smartphones are largely going to be replacing 3G W-CDMA smartphones. It's not like they are creating a whole new market segment. Sure, there will be a bump in sales as people ditch their old stuff.
