Intel Executive: Lack of LTE Support Is The Cause Of Slow Mobile Adoption In The US

Intel has been teasing its mobile chips for a while now, but we’ve never really seen any smartphones powered by the company here in the United States. While speaking at the Computex trade show in Taiwan, an Intel executive said that the reason for this is because the company’s mobile chips lack support for LTE.

When asked why the United States has been such a hard market for the company , he replied with ”Absence of LTE is the reason,” according to Engadget. “We can’t get ranged by U.S. carriers without LTE, so once we have multimode LTE coming to market later this year, we have an opportunity to compete in that business.”

With LTE such a huge factor for consumers nowadays, it seems odd that it would take Intel so long to release LTE compatible processors.

Do you think Intel will be able to crack the United States market? Let us know down in the comments!

  1. I think they should quit their whining…Qualcomm & Samsung processors have had no trouble “cracking’ the LTE barrier…if they can make a processor that has worked for the past 2 years, why wasn’t the mighty Intel?
