LAS VEGAS--Qualcomm remains the market leader by far in the cellular baseband market, and in LTE chips in particular. However, its chipset rivals made clear this week at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show that they are intent on using 2014 to close the gap on Qualcomm when it comes to LTE.
LAS VEGAS--Google, as had been rumored, launched a new partnership with a number of automakers to bring its Android mobile operating systems into connected cars. The alliance, announced as the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show is getting under way here, also serves as a counterbalance to a similar effort Apple launched to bring its iOS platform to car dashboards.
The first products with Nvidia's Tegra 4i chipset, which combines the company's application processor with an LTE modem, will be rolling into the market in the first half of next year, but likely will not be aimed at the U.S. market, according to CEO Jen-Hsun Huang.
Nvidia reported a sharp drop in revenue from its Tegra mobile chipset division in its fiscal second quarter, which the company said was expected, but the weak results indicate the silicon maker will have a tough hill to climb as it works to compete with Qualcomm, Samsung and other heavyweights.
Nvidia said its mobile business will remain flat this year, partially due to a slight delay in the release of its LTE-capable Tegra 4 chip.
