Price point adding the necessary components, SW, R&D work to perfect the quad-band end up spending too much. This extends your price point for the handset, which in turn reduces the appeal. The only reason it will affect the RF performance is through SW issues. Getting 4 RF receivers tuned and in-sync is difficult to do (in respect to releasing a product in a reasonable amount of time.) all comes down to the mighty dollar.
