re: Broadcom claims smallest 4G LTE-Advanced modem

what you mean by having IP from QCOM for so long?? You mean to say BCOM licensed QCOM 4G tech?? I was thinking, Broadcom acquired the 4G WiMax company Beceem, and built LTE by themselves with that team?? Is it not like that?

Too little too late. Why the heck its taking them this long, since they had the IP from QCOM for so long. Its poor execution and decision making on the Broadcom side. They are letting QCOM eat all their lunch now and pretty soon STE and Intel will have their solution before these guys. Looks like none of these guys commenting above me have any insight (@sranje, @frankeory)

Definitely a major achievement. Broadcom has now joined the increasingly shorter and shorter list of mobile platform (chipset) vendors with long-term staying power

Leave it to the company that was built on broadband modem technology to accomplish this feat. Congrats to Broadcom.
