Interesting that top people in some of the major players in LTE all worked together at the same company in the US.

my cheap smartphone from cricket sucked. not sure if the software,hardware or service sucked. Ended up back at the V with penalty for leaving per month. Hope they have fixed issues if in hardware or software.

With economic crisis hurting Europe and the US, low cost smart phone is a global product. Nokia has focused its strategy on this, not only in China and India.

single-core is said about CPU, not GPU or DSP

That's correct. It is unsubsidized.

Junko - Is the $50 price really unsubsidized? That's how I read your article and if so that's amazing. A year ago people didn't expect to see $50 smartphones for much longer. Incidentally, the previous commentators are underestimating the demand for cheap phones, even in the U.S. There are plenty of poorer folks, cheapskates and large families who are on prepaid in the U.S. with a cheap phone. Upgrading to a smartphone at that price is a no brainer for occasional use of the net.

When a new product starts, people will typically tolerate size and price. Towards market matureness, consumers will demand variety which include different size and form factor. In particular, in the Asian and European market, consumers will demand smaller phones, for ease of carrying, and different look, for uniqueness. The cell phone market development followed the trend from Motorola DynaTAC 8000X to Motorola MicroTAC; then, comes the Nokia 8850 with style. Consumers are price sensitive, in particular, once the smartphone becomes a commodity. There is no doubt the market is moving towards $50.00 smartphone. Nonetheless, the high price tag smartphone will still be around.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
