lack of paired spectrum
Its a fair comment considering how much demand for spectrum there is forecast to be for mobile use and the lack of paired spectrum that seems to be available for international harmonisation in the near future. Maybe TDD will win just because of this (lack of) availability.
My uneducated feeling wonders if that killing off FDD now by ZTE becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. What do the Apples and Samsungs say about this? Though if the asymmetrical demands of mobile data consumption eg Lolcats galore on youtube continue, FDD will be a waste of good spectrum.
Sad face as my boss didn't send me the world mobile congress in Barcelona
