GSM vs. CDMA, again

As you should know by now, standards wars are longstanding area of interest of mine. While not a classic standards war, the technology rivalry between GSM and CDMA has captured both my interest and the interest of some of my doctoral students (see, for example, this item, and also this one). Thus, when this article came to my attention, I was moved to bring this technology rivalry up again.

Do you think this is largely a concern for 2G (and 2.5G) networks? Is this article at all relevant to 3G networks? If you are a CDMA user, have you considered switching to a GSM network because of the technology? If so, why?
