China Mobile to release voice-over LTE phones next year in 4G push

The carrier’s previous launch of its 3G services in 2009 was marred by the fact that it used a new standard called TD-SCDMA (Time Division Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access) that was not widely supported by the industry. As a result, China Mobile was slow to launch attractive handsets capable of using its 3G networks, and only in the last year has it caught up with its rivals in smartphone sales, according to analysts.

LTE TDD, also known as TD-LTE in China, has become a mature technology, and already 16 different vendors are building mobile chips to support it, Tang said. These include components that will allow smartphones to use both LTE TDD and FDD (Frequency Division Duplexing) standards, he added.

The company’s voice over LTE phones, slated to arrive in the second half of 2014, will allow the handsets to make high-definition voice calls over its 4G network. The technology is still not widely deployed, but adoption could grow gradually.

In addition, China Mobile will also start selling low-end TDD LTE handsets next year priced at around 1000 yuan (US$162), Tang said.

Off-shoring Common Sense

An article called Off-shoring Common Sense by Alan Tonelson caught pro-offshorers in an embarrassing situation that illustrates how deep the problem has grown. Excerpt:
Desperate to convince readers that sending [service] jobs to India "isn’t just taking American jobs, it’s also making them," Friedman uncritically cites an Indian businessman’s observation that many of the products used by his call center company are American: Compaq computers, Microsoft software, Lucent phones, Carrier air conditioners, Coca Cola-brand bottled water

But I can't help thinking we have gotten away from honoring the wisdom that comes with age and experience (traveling to Syria multiple times and reading books are not an adequate substitute).
