GSM vs. CDMA
Defenders and promoters of GSM technology, Nokia, Ericsson, Siemens, Philips and Alcatel continue in their war against CDMA technology, a rival in the mobile market in some countries.
With a market share of about 80%, from GSM it is stated that its technology is cheaper and more flexible, with greater competition within the chip market, given that those required for CDMA are provided by Qualcomm itself, which is behind the technology. They also provide data on the growth of their network compared to that of Qualcomm.
The ultimate goal of all these cross-statements is found in the fact that GSM distributors want Qualcomm not to spread over prices for GSM broadband, called WCDMA, and thereby win a lawsuit against the European Commission.
