I couldn’t resist linking to this, for the sheer comedy of it: The group representing the interests of the CDMA world has commissioned a study looking at the “opportunities and challenges” of WiMax. Shockingly, the report finds that WiMax will have a “marginal impact, at best” on 3G. Ironically this report basically makes a factual conclusion—that it’s likely that WiMax and 3G will both have a place in the market. But it’s pretty hard to take something like this seriously knowing that it’s backed by a group that could feel some competition from WiMax and when the press release has some defensive-sounding statements. The reality is that while CDMA has a lot of life left in it, it’s relatively accepted that OFDM, the air interface that WiMax is based on, is the future.
