Admiring the monochrome sky
Okay class, new exercise.
. Buy a copy of Samuel Beckett’s play Waiting for Godot.
. Cross out the word “Godot” everywhere in the play, replacing it with “G in China.”
The ugly truth is that the window of opportunity for G in China may be closing while we wait for the guys at Datang and Siemens to make TD-SCDMA market ready.
Over the next two years we’re going to start hearing more about fourth-generation (G) mobile technologies, and while neither of the current offerings (WiMax and OFDM) look ready to upgrade/replace cellular, there is no lack of companies trying to come up with order-of-magnitude improvements over G. Indeed, Sprint is already going to give WiMax a go.
At what point will China’s carriers simply say “bag it. We’ve waited this long, we’re waiting for The Next Thing?”
