Everyone, let's give it up for Beceem. The company just sent out a press release announcing that they have finally succeeded in creating a chip that can support both LTE and WiMax. This BCS500 4G chip supports 16e and 16m, as well as UE Class 4 LTE capabilities. This chip will be able to switch smoothly from 4G to LTE, depending on which gives the better signal at the time.

Engadget says that it is likely to be a while before this chip makes its way in to any mainstream products. They're probably right, but that doesn't make this any less exciting. The days of 3G-only mobile Internet connections are coming to an end. In just a year or two more, we'll really be cooking with gas.
