The fact that NOKIA is introducing the 8GB phone in Europe first is offensive to me. What do we American folks, who have money to burn, get all the good technology last? I wrote NOKIA an email and asked them to bring the 8GB version here to America so that we can have it too. I am aware that some of the WCDMA bands in Europe don't work over here and vice versa, but some of us travel into some seriously out-of-the-way places and like being prepared.

All the cell phone makers are trumpeting the fact that some of their phones are Quad-Band GSM and that is very nice and helpful, but what about Quad-Band WCDMA (850, 1700, 1900, 2100) too!? That would be really groovy to those of us that trav...

I agree with your business-centric thoughts. It is apparent that the industry goes after revenue streams churning out variations along established themes. True global wireless potential will be achieved by adopting all available protocols (quad band voice/tri band data) rather than packaging carrier specific technologies. I appreciate different folks want/need different types of phones, but it seems there is more emphasis in the states for "created markets" rather than addressing real needs. I wish Nokia would market more of their upper tier phones here as well. But I'm guessing that many of Nokia's products don't support the business goals of the carriers.
