Wait up just a second, let us get this straight: after years of teasing Americans with 3G smartphone
after sweet 3G smartphone
-- none of which packed even a lick of compatibility on US bands -- Nokia's going to rock its newest undisputed king of the hill, the E90
, with every band we could possibly hope for? Of course, we don't want to count our chickens 'fore they're hatched lest we get fooled again
, but the presence of Nokia's latest QWERTY-based Communicator device in the FCC's trusted hands sporting WCDMA on the 850, 1700, and 1900MHz bands is a very
promising sign, indeed. As a refresher, T-Mobile will be launching its WCDMA network
this year -- the last of the four national carriers to go 3G -- on the freshly-minted 1700MHz band, leaving future users without much of a handset selection from which to choose (as in, zero devices so far and few
on the roadmap). But hey, with phones like this seemingly sitting in T-Mobile's pipeline, that's just fine by us.
