For a while T-Mobile became the defacto way for the rest of the world to have access to GSM in the US.

Now we have China Mobile having a role in the development of Clearwires Time Division [TD] LTE network.  TD - LTE is a standard spear headed in China and its export to the US could have far reaching implications.

While most deployments today are based on Frequency Division, TD-LTE can solve a few ills for companies where spectrum interference is a possibility.

With Cricket having signed a five year deal with Clearwire for access to their China Mobile implementation.  This could lead to a rich market for China to start exporting smart phones and other devices.

TD - LTE is also a logical place for WiMAX companies to focus their migration but we have been on a hard path with these companies before.  Now the question is can the missing economies of scales be found with the Chinese driving the demand.

I think the answer is yes.
