    CHL Says One Million LTE-A phones by Q3

    Go to the CHL listing on Yahoo to see the article regarding the announcement that they plan to sell One Million LTE-A phones using their new Band 41 network. It hints that CHL will build its own phones because the OEMs, like AAPL, are too slow. It comes across like a negotiating ploy. Or, it may be a poke in the eye for Samsung (South Korea) or AAPL (USA) for nationalist reasons.

    • So, what does that have to do with the price of tea in China?... or the extremely remote connection to Clearwire? One million LTE phones within a country that has 1.104 billion mobile users estimated at the end of 2012 means that the penetration will be less than 0.1% of the total population.

      Clearwire has no mobile phones, they do not have a WiMAX phone. They have NO PLANS to have their own LTE phone. Sprint has phones, Softbank has phones, Clearwire does not. But but but.. But China has 1 million LTE phones. OK. Let's saw the fairy godmother gifts Clearlywired with 0.1% penetration of LTE phones and network to use them on, poof, tomorrow. Despite plans to build a small network, CW achieves 0.1% of penetration of the population, poof! That could be 0.001 times 330 million people = 330,000 subscribers.

      Nice try but no cigar.
