Now that the specifications for LTE, also known as Long Term Evolution, have been fixed, the road has been paved for a real ratification of the standard as part of the group's Release 8 set of standards that are due to be released in March of 2009. So far LTE has been largely relegated to test runs, since HSPA based UMTS networks still have quite a bit of life left in them, but the ratification of the standard is sure to encourage an increase in interest in LTE.
Earlier this month Nokia Siemens opened up an LTE testing lab in Dallas, and LG successfully completed the testing of the world's first LTE cell phone chipset. [via PhoneScoop]
