I agree, Mycroft. That article wasn't really helpful, since it didn't say anything about how U.S. companies will overcome the barriers they face, specifically:

* The difficulty in auctioning off more spectrum for 3G use.

* The traditions in the US of wireline, as opposed to wireless, Internet access. People already wired through their PCs may not rush to wireless the way they have in Japan, where wireless web access may be their only web access.

Those are just the first two that come to mind, but I would have liked to have seen some discussion of those kinds of things.
