Siemens Boss Sees US Switch From CDMA To GSM

The head of Siemens’ mobile networks business says he “would not bet” on North American carriers continuing to use CDMA products, because, well, just because, really. He says that CDMA is losing market share globally since many new mobile users are being added in emerging markets that use GSM, although it’s unclear exactly why this would spur US carriers to throw away the billions they’ve spent on their CDMA networks. The guy’s hardly an unbiased source, given Siemens’ position as a network infrastructure vendor — one that doesn’t make any CDMA equipment.
