Why is it that Sony Ericssion will make a 1700 AWS 3G phone for T-Mobile...and they won't make CDMA?

Sony has been out of the CDMA game for a few years now... WHY? T-Mobile is the ONLY GSM carrier out there using AWS 1700... so if they make a phone that supports it... they are making it for ONLY
T-Mobile... and that is a limited user base to sell phones to. Yet... for years they have dogged CDMA technology for years because of it's "limited user base" (compared to GSM)... yet they could be selling phones to Verizon, Sprint, Alltel, Metro, Cricket, Virgin.... who probably cover 80 million people alone. I don't get it.
