With the fifth era of the Gobi platform Qualcomm as we speak launched a brand new specification for mobile chips, the (almost) to unite all mobile requirements used worldwide in a single chip.
The reference platform is a bit too late for the iPad three to be used, however paves the best manner for future IOS gadgets with actual "world chip". and is designed particularly for ultra-thin cellular units.
apart from GSM/3G and CDMA will help the subsequent technology Gobi additionally the sooner LTE/4G customary FDD and TDD networks round the world, and additionally focuses on backward compatibility with the "3. 5G" applied sciences HSPA + and EV -DO set.
Thus the usage of native quick 4G networks is guaranteed, and also you are able to fall again in technically much less superior areas to 3G or GPRS.
The platform additionally options built-in GPS functionality, and builders can interfaces (APIs) to different extensions similar to LTE, CDMA2000, 1xEV-DO Rev. A and B, dual-carrier HSPA + and TD-SCDMA to be adjusted. In short, multi functional.

So far, Apple deserted in favor of design and battery energy on the LTE customary. the brand new Gobi chips are probably to be demanding from Apple lastly met.
