NVIDIA, likely feeling the sting of not having an LTE presence on some of the biggest carriers in the US, announced this morning that the Icera 410 modem has been validated for use on AT&T’s network. This particular chipset utilizes the carrier’s particular brand of Long-Term Evolution — in addition to HSPA+, UMTS and 2G — which means that we should see Icera-powered 4G devices on AT&T’s lineup sometime this year. NVIDIA has promised we’ll see Tegra 3 LTE utilizing “partners’ baseband processors” before we ring in 2013, so we’re hoping this bit of news can help the company live up to its word. The press release is all yours to read after the break.
