linked with the state-of-the-art in 4G devices."
The WiMAX chip inside the HTC devices is Sequans' SQN1210, one of the
most highly integrated semiconductor solutions in the industry. The
SQN1210 is highly optimized for mobile handsets, delivering baseband and
triple band RF integrated in a single, 65 nm die for ultra low power
