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.

hmm - there is much more than "so what" LTE smartphones will dramatically accelerate entry into the “mobile cloud” era --- characterized by a new wave of technological innovations and entirely new services The ascendency of mobile computers with a phone function (aka smartphones) is only starting -- we have not seen anything yet...

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.

The vast majority of the embedded designers I know typically create MCU-based systems -- they rarely even consider using a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA).

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
