---> revising the history of the MENS cartel


Not in the least. My comment was only that cdma might have done better if it was also supported globally by the Chinese in a bigger manner. The industry was young back then and the greater the advantage one could muster over the GSM variants couldn't have been all that bad. As it was the Chinese were likely critical in bringing cheap cdma infrastructure and handsets to Africa, the middle/far east and eastern Europe/Russian markets. Many of the other non North American areas of the world ended up being dominated by the GSM cartel even where cdma got started with a small competitive footprint.

In the end, cdma became rather irrelevant which has been good for Qualcomm. Effort now is much more focused than ever before.
