both DoCoMo and Vodafone have to go 3G in Japan.
DoCoMo invested in W-CDMA heavily and their FOMA network broke
the world record of the least communication traffic (minutes/packets)
made on each dollar of the equipment.
it's a different story for Vodafone Japan. Ericsson failed to
provide them good PDC equipment as DoCoMo's, and the PDC network is
more expensive than GSM, cdma, and even UMTS!
so UMTS is better if it could work as well as PDC.
