FUD Zilla reports NVIDIA's Tegra 5 "Logan" SoC will have a major flaw: the lack of an integrated LTE modem. Just like its predecessor, the upcoming SoC will require a seperate modem like the Icera i500, which puts it at a disadvantage versus rivals that do have an integrated modem.
The tradition continues. Our sources are confirming that Nvidia’s Logan SoC, possibly called Tegra 5, doesn’t come with an integrated LTE modem. Just like Apple, Nvidia makes a big fast chip with impressive Kepler based GPU, but it won't put a an icera LTE solution inside the same chip.
Icera i500 is Tegra 5 compatible and it has AT&T certification. As the launch draws near, it should become compatible with other US and international LTE carriers like Verizon and T-mobile.
