I wonder why HTC have changed the radio circuit that significantly:
Hermes (UK version - ie, vario ii)
GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900
UMTS: 2100 or 850
GSM: 900, 1800, 1900 - (what no 850?)
UMTS: 2100, 900
Very disappointing, that the quad band GSM is dropped. Less interested in UMTS (3G) bands, as out of country data will be stupidly priced for a long time yet.
If I get the TP, then I may have to use my old iMate SP5 as a handset for north america... :-(
(850 in NA covers more miles per cell site than 1900, significantly so, given population dispersion).
