old3eyes:knoydart:old3eyes: Don't worry. The chip sets will do both when they arrive .
Qualcomm have just announced 7 bands on 1 chip, but there are some serious challenges to get all the RF on board one chip. Sbiddle sums it up nicely, the fragmentation of LTE frequency use world wide already poses a problem and band harmonisation is a massive issue. NZ is a tech taker in market terms so getting the right band & band plan is a big priority for NZ inc.
If you want an example of this already playing out, you only have to look across to Tasman to the new ipad and Apple losing a court case with the ACMA over labelling a product ¨4G¨ where LTE services are not compatible.
EDIT for poor grammar & spelling
From memory Apple never advertized it as being LTE compatible in Australia . It was just on the packaging and the ACCC jumped up and down like most bureaucrats do at times like these..
PS It was never a court case..
Well it ended up in a court room so I'd define that a court case!
