because, as the smaller player, tmo (and sprint) are using product differentiation and open source platforms to draw customers. plus, a product is way too cool and non-revenue generating for the likes of iron-fisted carriers like att and vzw

Please Phone Gods, please let this be a device that is QUAD-3G BANDED! Why, oh why are all the latest phones coming out that are either 900/2100 *OR* 850/1900 3G?! as for 1700-- half of that 3G implementation is actually in the 2100 band (the uplink portion I think.) I go between the US and Japan a lot so I need something that will work on these bands-- and having EDGE wont do-- for one, in Japan there is no 2.5G GSM/EDGE. Just WCDMA/UMTS at 2100. so any US version of anything coming out in the next cycle will not work because they won' t have that band in there at all. And something like the Omnia or Touch Pro will work in the US, but just at pokey EDGE speeds. Am I the only one here that cares? I want a 850/900/1700/1900/2100 3G phone I can take to any carrier anywhere in the world.

Isn't this being released as a new Sidekick? Or no?
