ST-Ericsson and Ericsson are successful in testing LTE to HSPA handoff
ST-Ericsson and Ericsson announced a successful test of the LTE network. One of the smaller, but most important part of testing a new pipeline is to make sure that calls can go back and forth seamlessly between the different technologies; for now, VIOLA! Success. A mobile broadband phone call was made over the LTE network and was handed over to a HSPA network. The testing ensures that smooth switching can occur as one moves in and out of the LTE pipeline back and forth into 3G. Jörgen Lantto, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of ST-Ericsson, said, "Seamless roaming between LTE and today’s networks is a key device capability to enable faster introduction of LTE." The device used in the test was a multi-mode LTE/HSPA unit powered by a chipset that is commercially available today. Mr. Lantto added that, "With multimode devices consumers can enjoy new high-speed mobile broadband services and global coverage right from the launch of LTE services."

Very nice! I'm sure those lucky Swedes who just got LTE would love to have a dual mode modem, since the ones they were issued are LTE only. Although since they're getting about 42 Mbps down, I'm sure they're not complaining :-P

ATT and Tmo will not be doing LTE for quite some time. that was for european uses im sure. VZW will have like a 3 yr lock on it if i remember correctly. VZW roll out 2010, ATT rollout 2013/14. Tmo ?!??? Sprint? not rolling it like a taard.
