    Intel ships its 4G LTE modem for faster wireless tablets and laptops

    Intel announced today that its 4G LTE modem chip is now shipping in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 tablet in Europe and Asia.

    The new chip takes Intel into the fast-growing market for 4G LTE devices that make tablets and laptops much more mobile, as they can connect to the internet via a mobile network rather than just a WiFi network. The chip will take Intel into closer competition with rivals such as Qualcomm, which dominates the mobile wireless market.

    Intel has said that the XMM 7160 LTE modem is a multimode modem, meaning it can handle various wireless protocols (2G, 3G, 4G LTE), voice, and a variety of worldwide mobile data standards. Intel said that it is also introducing new modules with the chips for mobile devices. Intel’s new module will support peak downlink speeds of 100 megabits per second over LTE networks. Those modules are expected to ship in 2014.

    “As LTE networks expand at a rapid pace, 4G connectivity will be an expected ingredient in devices from phones to tablets as well as laptops,” said Hermann Eul, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Mobile and Communications Group. “Intel is providing customers an array of options for fast, reliable LTE connectivity while delivering a competitive choice and design flexibility for the mobile ecosystem.”

    Intel designed the chip to work across a variety of markets, adapting as needed to whatever technology local networks use.

    • Clarification - this is for LTE data only (correct?) - LTE for voice still pending, arriving soon....

      • It looks like this supports voice also, but I am translating from marketing-speak.
