China's "home-grown" 3G mobile phone technology, TD-SCDMA, has failed a government-run performance trial, Xinhua reported. The China Academy of Telecom Research said the five-month trial showed the system lagged behind its two main overseas competitors, WCDMA and CDMA2000, in many performance categories and, unlike the other two systems, is far from ready for commercial use. Key problems include lack of workable handsets, dubious stability and poor reliability of TD-SCDMA's core network, Xinhua said. The report said TD-SCDMA's failure to match its foreign competitors may prompt a further delay in the government's issuing of 3G licenses if it decides to wait until the home-grown system is ready.
