some frequency allocations are unpaired so TDD is more practical. There are other benefits such as the flexible DL/UL ratio can be set to match your traffic demand giving you overall better efficiency and channel reciprocity can be expoited in beamforming algorithms. If there are legacy systems in the spectrum ( such as 802.16e WiMAX ) TD-LTE can be frame aligned to give smooth migration without interference issues.
Having said that, in my view the discussion of TDD vs FDD is the wrong one. Most operators will end up deploying both and expoit the advantages of each. FDD in lower bands for coverage; TDD in higher bands where there is more spectrum for capacity. The growing converged device ecosystem and infrastructure mechanisms such as HO and load balancing make it a viable and, could be argued essential, proposition.
