During NVIDIA’s earnings call on Wednesday, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang told investors that quad-core Tegra 3 smartphones would ship this quarter. “This quarter we are expecting to ship Tegra 3 based superphones,” Huang said. “At Mobile World Congress is when we expect to announce these devices, and we expect to announce and ship them this quarter.” The company also announced that its 3G/4G LTE system on a chip will be coming to devices sometime this year. The current generation of LTE phones and tablets use radio chips that are separate from the processor, however numerous companies are looking to integrate LTE into a single chipset. “We will have shipping modems this year, hopefully sooner than later,” Huang said. NVIDIA looks to compete with Qualcomm, which plans to soon release an integrated 4G LTE Snapdragon chipset.
