Yes and no. More bands = more complex engineering.

That may or may not be offset by economies of scale, especially when considering smaller carriers.

I think if economies of scale made it cheaper for the iPhone, Apple would have already done it, as they are already a leader in minimizing SKUs with phones supporting a large number of bands.

Or {gasp!} they might have to add 0.005 mm to the thickness of the iPhone in order to add an extra set of filters!

Wouldn't that be terrible?
