Chinese 3G on hold?

Comments

China Previous reports of China’s tri-pronged 3G licensing getting through before the 2008 Beijing Olympics may have been a bold-faced lie. Aright, fine, maybe just a little inaccurate. Right now, China’s number one priority is to get its own carrier, China Mobile up and stable with fixed-line service before worrying about CDMA2000 or WCDMA, which won’t start until October. Give the home boys a bit of a head start, you know? It goes without saying that China’s got the biggest wireless market out there, and even if it takes a little longer, it can be the most diverse in being the only country to carry three internationally-recognized wireless standards.
