So they make a new device for the slowly dieing cdma networks but no gsm/hsdpa equipment? If they do announce one what chance will it have AWS support? No tmo I bet since they haven't carried a palm since the treo 600 days.

Yes, there will absolutely be a GSM/WCDMA version of the new Palm. It will come as soon as Sprint's exclusivity period ends.

It will be a GSM world version not a GSM version exclusive to a carrier in the US.

I believe the Sprint version will be strictly CDMA, I do know that certain Sprint phones can be used overseas on GSM providing you attach a GSM plan to your account. My guess is that Palm did not include a GSM radio due to the fact a person overseas can just purchase a CDMA version for much-much cheaper than a GSM world version.
