LG Electronics (LG) announced the first handset (user equipment) modem chip based on 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE)technology standards. This is a pretty big deal, considering how many people anticipate LTE to be the standard in the coming years. LG Cell phone news
This new modem is 13 square mm and can fit in any cellphone. But despite its tiny size, it can apparently crank out speeds of LTE. What does this equate to? About 100Mbps for downloads and 50Mbps for uploads. And when this was tested on a Windows Mobile device, it achieved 60Mbps for downloads and 20Mbps for uploads, which is still great.
Mobile phone carriers have now built LTE test networks and are currently working on early stage handsets. The first LTE mobile phones will likely reach the market in 2010.
