The European flavor of Nokia's N78
-- the one bearing the very un-American 900 and 2100MHz WCDMA radios -- just hit the wire, and while there's nothing much going on here that we didn't already know from Nokia's reveal at MWC, we did notice a sentence in the SAR report that has us just a little concerned. And we quote: "The difference between RM-236 and RM-235 is that RM-236 has had WCDMA900, WCDMA2100 and WLAN2450 components removed." In other words, Nokia appears to be making reference to a version of the N78 that has no American 3G (no 3G whatsoever, in fact) and no WiFi, and that's a version we want nothing
to do with. What gives, Nokia?Update:
As several folks have stated, this particular N78 is destined for the Chinese market, where HSDPA doesn't really, how should we put this... apply
. The N78 with North American 3G is still very much a go. Thanks, everyone!
