U.S. trade talks with China have resulted in the country's leaders saying they won't favor any 3G standard when they issue next-generation licenses, allowing telecom operators to choose which standard to use. U.S. government and industry officials have feared China's apparent interest in forcing operators to deploy TD-SCDMA, which has never been deployed commercially, as a way to make China a leader in mobile technology. China's operators, however, have been unusually noisy about their opposition to the technology, saying a forced deployment would hurt them economically and competitively. What does this mean for the future of TD-SCDMA and for those vendors who put R&D dollars into it? I'm sure the Chinese government has some sort of plan to deploy it, maybe through some favorable economic incentives?
