    Curious if anyone knows what the LTE radio is in the Charge? I want to know if it's the same Qualcomm MDM9600 chipset in the Thunderbolt along with a Hummingbird processor, or is the radio chipset also a Samsung design?

    Thanks!

    Dug up some good info myself, had been searching for some time, then of course found it on my own after asking the question...
    Charge is using a VIA Telecom CBP7.1 CDMA modem instead of the old Qualcomm QSC6085 in the Fascinate
    LTE modem looks to be a native Samsung designed chip called the CMC220.

    Knowing that it becomes more clear how the performance and battery life can be substantially different (better?) than the Thunderbolt's MDM9600/MSM8655 combination.

    Reference: Samsung DROID Charge
