Summer sizzler: LTE is hot trend according to V3 and these are some hotties in LTE

April 27, 2011

V3’s Lovely Iain Thomson has highlighted LTE as a hottie for 2011 in his recent article with his colleague, Shaun Nichols, Top fertile areas in tech:

“Long-term evolution (LTE) networks are going to have a superb year of growth, now that enough operators have decided to move ahead to make it the majority standard for the next generation of mobile communications…..”

Another hottie is “Tablets in Business”. I think we’re seening some trends there. Read the whole story from Iain and Shaun on those here.

The article gives an excuse to comment on those recognised by the mobile industry as leaders or hotties in LTE. Congratulations to those shortlisted and good luck!
