NVIDIA Icera modem certified for AT&T: quad-core LTE incoming

One of the more frustrating trends in the world of high-end Android phones as of late has been the somewhat slow adoption of quad-core processors like NVIDIA's Tegra 3 on speedy LTE networks. Up to now we've seen major phones like the HTC One X "settle" for a dual-core design when debuting on LTE carriers, simply because the standards for the combination of SoC and radio weren't ready yet. Today NVIDIA has announced that its Icera radio module has been certified for use with AT&T's LTE bands.

One of them most annoying things about being a gadget lover in America is that none of the wireless carriers share all of their radio bands, making switching a phone from one carrier to another somewhere between difficult and impossible. But it'll get a little easier by year's end, thanks to T-Mobile's continuing network upgrades. A company executive told journalists that it's adding more wireless spectrum in targeted bands, so that international HSPA+ phones will finally work with speeds faster than 2G.

SiriusXM’s latest portable radio player runs Android

SiriusXM is great to have when you're in the mood to listening to some music but sick of the same playlists you've got lined up in your library. But why not do it in style with their new portable media player, the Lynx? It runs Android OS, and is bound to have some exclusive applications included that are absent in their previous devices. It can stream music as a normal in-car satellite radio, or connect wirelessly to stream through a Bluetooth connection - though, beware of a lack in audio quality. And it's also nice to see SiriusXM included a 3.5mm headphone input; for such a tiny, portable device, it can be used practically anywhere at any time.
