The firm said LTE will usher in a new connected environment for consumer electronics devices such as portable game consoles and digital cameras. However, some hurdles remain to LTE's success. The main challenge: how mobile operators price the service. Their challenge is to keep prices low enough for droves of subscribers to sign up despite the fact it will be the fastest data technology available in the market. Article
