<Is GSM the standard in Europe and elsewhere? Is it a serious competitor? What is your favorite site for wireless news?>

GSM is definitely the standard in Europe and some other places. But, networks are reaching saturation,
quality tends to be poor, and you need a lot more infrastructure (aerials) than with CDMA, so think about the future.

I live in Australia now, we have 3 GSM networks,
2 AMPS networks being phased out and a new CDMA network.
CDMA provides better quality, it´s going to be a hit
I think.
