North America never gets any of the good phones because of the novel concept of using the 850/1900mhz band as opposed to the 900/1800 band that the rest of the world uses. Since CDMA and TDMA use the 800/1900 bandwidth as well, so it seems that there's a lot of frequency space out there that's not being used. The North American carriers should have had the forsight to use 900/1800 like the rest of the world and then GSM could have truly been the global standard, but until that time, there will be a lag between when the rest of the world gets awesome new phones like the Nseries, and when they finally trickle down to over here.
