TD-SCDMA is just one of the wireless technologies set to be deployed as part of China's 3G rollout, with HSPA (high speed packet access) and CDMA evolution variants, such as EV-DO (data only), also due to be used alongside China's own 3G flavor. The domestic standard is strongly favored by the Chinese government, however. (See PicoChip Unveils Chinese Femtocell.) China has said that it will have 3G up and running in cities in time for the Olympics in August 2008.
