Well WCDMA aka UMTS was "made in Japan" as NTT DoCoMo
launched the first commerical WCDMA 3G mobile network in 1991.
I dunno about protectionism, and there are many sides to this. The
North American wireless infrastructure is advancing slowly due to
its roots in old tech, and will probably be the slowest to advance to
widespread 3G adoption.
