The LTE stuff is interesting, especially the modem from Nvidia, Icera 500

the Intel conference has been boring, except for 7watt core chips that Anandtech talked about months ago. Mandatory touch on Ultrabooks seems really dumb to me though.

Post CES 2013 comments? Is it already over? I thought that it had just started.

Unfortunately in the last few years with all the companies releasing products ASAP and no longer waiting for CES to unveil new products, CES is over b4 it starts.

From the article I posted "no word on CDMA2000 1x/EVDO 3GPP2 suite making it." This could mean no Tegra4 phones for Sprint or Tegra4 phones paired with a Qualcomm modem.. Hopefully Samsung can do cdma+LTE in their modems for the Exynos 5.

My comment is "Damn NVidia You Crazy". I really want a Shield, but I'm afraid they'll be $500+... and that their game-streaming service really will be locked in to a few high-end NVidia cards only.

I think I'm kind of disappointed in CES this year. Maybe it's because I haven't been following along very closely. I've been buried with work and all.

Follow a little closer and you can glean some cool info. In this interview the Device Marketer for Sprint made some interesting comments regarding the use of removable SIMs and QWERTY phones in the future. (go to the end)

Sprint will also be including more FM Radio support going forward. I've always wanted that feature!

 

Sprint has been working with the American radio industry to bring NextRadio FM tuners to Android and Windows Phone devices starting later this year. Handsets equipped with the NextRadio tuner will be able to listen to local FM radio stations, as well as use radio apps that require a tuner. Customers that utilize the feature will not be forced to eat up data as they would with streaming music apps since a tuner is used. Sprint customers will also be able to experience a "wide range of interactive listener features," although specifics have yet to be revealed. The preliminary agreement between Sprint and radio industry representatives will let users enjoy traditional radio through their smartphones over the next three years.

 

I'm still a little skeptical that it may just be an app for streaming radio instead of an actual physical tuner but I hope it is!

I used the FM Radio tuner on my OG EVO all the time. It's probably the only thing I miss about that phone.

    • Here is how many competitive permits are "remaining" in each state after round 27: (bonus points: reply with the states/territories/districts that are already "settled".) AL 4 AR 1 AS 2 AZ 5 CA 2 CO 53 DE 2 FL 5 GA 48 GU 3 HI 3 IA 40 ID 19 IL 7 IN 19 KS 113 KY 22 LA 9 MA 3 MD 11 ME 1 MI 48 MO 54 MP 10 MS 27 MT 33 NC 12 ND 22 NE 8 NH 1 NJ 2 NM 26 NV 17 NY 6 OH 24 OK 9 OR 2 PA 2 PR 1 SC 12 SD 47 TN 17 TX 36 UT 23 VA 8 WA 22 WI 22 WV 2 WY 11
    • Almost 89% and $250 Million after round 27.
    • Pace picks up a bit.  Round 23.  About 86% now "uncontested" and $223 Million total.  Down to 159 licenses without bids.
    • https://www.lightreading.com/5g/the-quiet-brilliance-of-t-mobiles-5g-spectrum-strategy/a/d-id/779589? Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases.  Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz. Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled".  After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month.  check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
    • Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale.  However, I could not get any throughput.  It would say Mobile Data Suspended.  n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps. I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to.  I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM.  Nothing unusual.  LG V60. Robert n41 SA   n41 NSA
