    Over the last couple of weeks we had a few stories suggesting that Verizon's LTE radio issues with some of their newer devices, and even the delay of the Droid Bionic, were caused by compatibility issues with the NVIDIA Tegra 2 chips. NVIDIA has stepped forward to "set the record straight". The renown graphics chip maker emphatically denies that their chip has anything to do with the LTE issues that VZW has been experiencing, and they wanted to make it clear that the rumors should stop. Here is a quote directly from their representatives,
    Their logic is undeniable, and it seems they haven't been given a fair deal over all this. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, which uses the Tegra 2 chip, has had zero issues running on Verizon's 4G LTE network. So, how can the Tegra 2 be the culprit. It doesn't seem likely. Kudos for NVIDIA for stepping up and defending their technology.

    I know the Dell streak 7 makes that set look like a pile of...it doesn't make it look very good.
