LTE chipset provider Altair Semiconductor in association with First International Computer (FIC) has launched the world’s first 3.5GHz LTE-enabled tablet computer Elija TF9300.
Elija TF9300 is a quad-core tablet equipped with a 9.7-inch IPS panel for ultra wide degree viewing angle, full 1080p video playback, 3.5GHz 4G LTE connectivity and USB OTG (on-the-go). It is powered by a Freescale Quad-Core 1.0 GHz processer with 16GB of storage and an Android 4.3 OS.
The tablet connects to LTE networks using Altair’s newest single-mode LTE chipset, FourGee-3800/6300, which supports a very wide frequency band span between 700-3800MHz.
3GPP defines 200 MHz of contiguous TDD spectrum in the 3.5GHz band, offering a significantly higher number of deployable LTE channels than any other band.
“To date, we’ve only seen 3.5GHz enabled products such as desktop modems and dongles. The first-ever 3.5GHz tablet marks the mainstreaming of this emerging LTE band,” said Eran Eshed, co-founder, Altair.
