Actually, CellStudent is probably the best advisor of this subject. If I remember correctly, he is an engineer that deals directly with cellphone operations including the antenna and radio aspects of wireless devices. Between CellStudent and WiWavelength, these two forum members can probably supply all of us with just about any technical knowledge you seek.

From what I gather from CellStudent's post, cost is far from being an issue here. If it was, he would not have gone out of his way to post his comment.

I'm not an engineer of any kind but I don't believe frequency chips are the problem for Apple. It just doesn't want to spend an extra couple dollars per device on filtration components. It wants everyone to conform to its rules and regiment. If Apple wants to be in the wireless industry, it should accept the game as every other manufacturer does to sell their products.

Nothing wrong with wanting to maintain a profit margin. However, trying to control everyone or everything around its itinerary, is just plain nonsense.
