After Google had accidentally dropped the T-Bomb
during its offline Gmail demo, we'd half expected (okay, hoped) that the version of the Sapphire
passing through the FCC would rock T-Mobile's 1700MHz AWS goodies for US 3G. Alas, it doesn't -- implying that there'll be at least two versions of the phone launched around the world, which really doesn't come as a surprise considering the G1
takes the same route. We figure this particular variant probably does 2100MHz HSDPA in addition to the usual array of GSM / EDGE bands, so rest easy, Vodafone customers, you'll have a perfectly legal handset should you decide to cross the pond.
