This is a tough call because China Mobile, the world’s largest mobile operator in terms of number of subscribers, must use China’s own TD-SCDMA standard. You could say it was lumbered with it as it is not, as yet, up to the older and more developed standards.
What it comes down to is the handset and thinking well outside the box. If someone, anyone, comes up with a TD-SCDMA handset which is a generation ahead of the Apple iPhone — and it could happen — then the game changes dramatically. It was hoped that Dell would do this, but its new phone does not inspire any confidence.
