Qualcomm banishes LTE fragmentation with global RF360 radio: roaming ahoy!

LTE smartphones all but locked to specific carriers because they don't support the profligate array of 4G frequencies in use could be a thing of the past, with Qualcomm promising its new RF360 radio chipset will play happily across 40 different bands. The Qualcomm RF360 Front End Solution can cope with all 40 of the different LTE frequenties carriers have deployed around the world, in addition to older HSPA+ and EVDO connections for when you're outside of fledgling 4G coverage.

Tiny Broadcom LTE chip enables trimmer tablets and longer-lasting phones

Tiny Broadcom LTE chip enables trimmer tablets and longer-lasting phones

4G phones and tablets could get smaller, run longer, and connect in more places, thanks to Broadcom's new 4G LTE Advanced modem, tipped as the industry's smallest so far. The Broadcom BCM21892 cuts power consumption by as much as 25-percent over a current LTE chip, the company claims, while taking up 35-percent less space and roaming across more network frequencies. That opens the door to a far more flexible 4G device.

XCom Global Huawei 3G E176G USB Modem Review

This Spring we got the opportunity to work with the Huawei model E176G 3G USB dongle connected to XCom Global for mobile data.
