Mmm ...I was wondering how long it would take for someone, here, to mention pCell.From everything I've read, seen and heard, the system works as claimed and Perlman has a 2-year lead on everyone else.Several times, Perlman has alluded to "a deal to be announced in late 2014".The followinghttp://www.artemis.com/pcellContains lots of good info -- including the ability to use a [much less expensive] pCell radio as an alternative to an LTE radio -- in areas with pCell coverage...
I fecund the nomination.
Well said!

Then they will use any different variants to match the requirements (cost, performance capacity) and intended uses of the specific devices.This is how they do it now for iPhones:http://www.apple.com/iphone/compare/And for the iPad:http://www.apple.com/ipad/compare/I don't...
I can see several reasons for different variants of the A8: Faster clock speed and maybe enhanced graphics for iPad (Especially an iPad Pro with larger screen. Same for new AppleTV for console-quality games. It's been quite a few years since I worked in the semiconductor industry. Back then, they would manufacture to a set of target specs -- then test for those specs. Rejects weren't discarded -- rather they were re-tested to lesser specs for use in lower...
