China Mobile Could Get The iPhone

According to The Street, the introduction of the a new Long Term Evolution (LTE) chipset by Qualcomm could lead to China Mobile carrying the iPhone this year.

According to the report:

[quote] Qualcomm this week announced a new Long Term Evolution (LTE) chipset, the RF360 Front End Solution, which for the first time offers a truly global 4G LTE design for mobile devices. It can run on all seven modes, including LTE-FDD, LTE-TDD, WCDMA, EV-DO, CDMA 1x, TD-SCDMA and GSM/EDGE.

That’s important, because China Mobile’s 3G network is TD-SCDMA-based, though it is working on a 4G network with its own homegrown technology. Part of the reason Apple has not brought the iPhone to the world’s largest carrier is that the technologies did not match up.

But the new Qualcomm chip may change that.[/quote]

“Our new RF devices are tightly integrated and will allow us the flexibility and scalability to supply OEMs of all types, from those requiring only a region-specific LTE solution, to those needing LTE global roaming support.” Alex Katouzian, Qualcomm’s senior vice president of product management, said in a press release related to the new chipset.
