In which technology are today long and short distance wireless devices made ? cmos integrated circuit or what ?
Depends. RF circuits are mostly made of GaAs and sige, other circuits are cmos. High-power devices are often made of GaN. There are many technologies by many makers.

For any amplifier (GaAs, cmos, BJT, sige, etc) the 10dB difference rule between IP3 and P1dB is valid ONLY if the amplifier has proper bias termination and filtering at frequency equal to f2-f1 in a two-tone test.

The processes you mentioned are sige, not cmos. The cmos 130nm kit from IBM is 8RF. See IBM 0.13 Micron 8RF-DM Process
I think I misunderstood, I was looking at core voltages not I/O. For 1.8 V I/O try IBM 65 Nanometer 10SF Process IBM 65nm

Can you clear up some thing.
Are you talking about Process/technology: MOS, cmos, Bicmos, sige....
Or BJT's vs. FET's ?
Are you assuming highest frequency to be amplified is your merit of Speed,
(Frequency response of the device "S21")
How fast the device can transition from a Low to High state is your merit of speed?

If you compare 3 (4) terminal devices the product of current gainbandwidth and the breakdown voltage is important.
For MOS devices you get about 70-100GHz*V. sige Bipolar is about 2*3 times higher. GaAs a further factor of 1-1.5.
MOS have the additional disadvantage that the above speed is only true if the saturation voltage is very high. Tha

sige is a Bicmos technology. So, you have the option to use bipolar transistors ( vertical bipolar transistors ). Usually, these BJT's have a much higher fT ( maybe an order of magnitude higher )than the cmos transistors so they can be used for higher frequencies.
I don't think there is a special consideration. You just have the option to (...)

cmos process is cheaper comparable with others (GaAs, sige, etc). A cmos PA can meet in some limits the same performances with competitors.
Nobody wants to make a cmos PA with poor performance. Just cheaper.

The future is in cmos!
If it's true that some companies are having troubles with pure cmos, it's also true that the RF is always driven by baseband capabilities.
Now we are in a phase where Bicmos (mostly 0.35,0.25 and sige) is the must if you want product today. I am designing using it.
