NVIDIA says that there are no compatibility issues between Tegra 2 and LTE

NVIDIA says that there are no compatibility issues between Tegra 2 and LTE
Rumors have been circulating that the NVIDIA Tegra 2's inability to work well on Verizon's 4G LTE network caused the scrapping of the original Motorola DROID Bionic, which is expected to be released later this year as a completely different phone than originally planned. The same reasoning is behind the speculation that the inability of the Tegra 2 CPU to mesh with Verizon's 4G pipelines caused the LTE update to the Motorola XOOM to happen just now, a little late, as we reported yesterday.

Like an angry parent, upset that his/her kid is the subject of some vindictive rumors that he can't get along with anyone, NVIDIA stood up for its product and said that the Tegra chip has no compatibility issues with LTE. The chip manufacturer brought up the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G LTE tablet as an example of how Tegra and LTE play nicely with each other. According to NVIDIA, there is nothing unique about LTE that would prevent Tegra 2 chips from working on it.

Now that NVIDIA has cleared this up, perhaps a play date between the little tykes can be worked out. And at the same time, if Motorola would reveal the reason for the ole' switcheroo with the DROID Bionic, it could stop another vicious rumor from starting.
