Re: 4G landgrab...
An update on FDD in China: even though the tenders haven't been let and the licences haven't even been issued, vendors have already won contracts that cover the FDD rollouts for Telecom and Unicom. THe NSN one for China Telecom this week for one, covers both TDD and FDD. Makes sense, but also makes for underwhelmingly vague press announcements.

Re: 4G landgrab...
Coming up in 2014 will be the China Unicom and China Telecom TDD contracts and the much bigger FDD contracts (the hitch being they don't have the FDD licences yet).

Taiwan has just issued 4G licences, too, so five operators apart from Chunghwa, and including two greenfields players, will be looking for vendors.

4G landgrab...
It's a real scrap for LTE share in APAC, but lots of opportunity. Notable that vendors are making more of a deal about packet core succes these days -- RAN is where the big numbers are but the packet core is incredibly important for long-term traction.
