It's been a year since Nvidia took the wraps off Tegra 4i, its first smartphone design with an integrated software modem, quad-core Cortex-A9 processor, and a slightly smaller version of the Tegra 4 mobile GPU used in devices like Nvidia's Shield. At the time, Nvidia promised that we'd see devices out by the end of the year. Today, the company is finally announcing its first partner for the new phone -- the European telecom Wiko.

As process technologies shrink, more and more power (and memory) are being crammed into smaller spaces, which allows for smaller, more mobile gadgets and lifestyles. NVIDIA is certainly helping to lead that charge, today introducing its first integrated Tegra LTE processor. The Tegra 4i has 4G LTE on its brain, and NVIDIA claims that this chip is "significantly faster yet half the size of its nearest competitor." That's a line that'll surely get the attention of folks like Qualcomm and Texas Instruments. Previously codenamed... Read more...
