One thought on “GSM gets its groove on… maybe”

  1. Their press release is a bit overhyped. 🙂 The reality is that GSM in the Americas still has fewer than half the number of subscribers (52M) as both TDMA (106M) and CDMA (105M). And subscriber growth in Latin America (12.62M) nearly equalled growth in North America (13.51M).

    I expect GSM’s growth to come at the expense of TDMA, not CDMA, though. For example, Cingular will probably hasten AT&T’s migration as well as their own. The faster they can get on one platform the faster they’ll start benefitting from the economy of scale.
