Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but nowhere does the article or press release state that this chip is Tegra 3 or quad-core or even a processor at all. To me the article makes it sound like it's a modem chip that integrates LTE, HSPA+, 3G, and 2G into one radio receiver. While this is still a really good thing for connectivity, battery life, and form factor (having 1 chip for all radios vs 2 or 3 gives greater flexibility and thinner devices). Are people assuming that it's a qual-core processor or am I missing something? (I hope that I am ;) .)

It's just a baseband chip. No CPU. I'm sure there's tight integration with this and tegra 3, though.
