Intel has confirmed that it will be running behind the other mobile chipmakers with LTE adoption.

It seems that the lack of LTE is making it difficult for Chipzilla to flog its Medfield chips in the US. Apparently, the only company that can get away with flogging LTE-less phones is Apple, which only recently put one out.
