The Europeans had a lock on China's mobile technologies, when the CDMA deal was signed. China had two objectives in doing the deal, removing U.S. objections to WTO admission, and ripping off IPR to develop TD-SCDMA. They accomplished both, but failed to make balky and cumbersome TD-SCDMA "sufficient" for 3G, and attractive for export. This time around, they've decided to rip off TD-LTE, and damage Qualcomm's business model. The outcome has yet to be determined.
