Re: I'm not getting it?
3G radio antennas consume significantly more battery power than RIM has been comfortable with. The Bold is their first 3G BB. RIM has had trouble adapting 3G radios to their BB's because of that battery issue. Carriers may have a problem with a BB that would only last a couple of hours as well. I'm not saying that as a fact, just an opinion based on my experience and what I've seen.
F.Y.I. Ever since the BB 8703, every Blackberry that has come to Sprint has been 3G. They do eat battery life significantly faster, but thats just the tradeoff I guess... the 8830 has a pretty good battery life with 3G though.
