oh yeah, and, I guess I'm confused. A few posts ago your opionion was:

"Cingular is a huge, huge carrier. A couple years ago, they told manufacturers "we need GSM 850 phones". Such things did not exist then, but here we are and now there are plenty of them. If Cingular said "we need quad-band phones", there would be plenty of them on the market within 12 months. That's what needs to happen."

But then you post:

"Let's be realistic, here. Put all the GSM 850 carriers together, including AT&T and Cingular, and that's still a pretty small percentage of the global GSM market. Then combine that with the fact that not everyone needs or wants a world phone - most people just want a phone that works in their region.

So you can't expect every manufacturer to be rushing to create quad-band phones. There just isn't the demand"

These statements seem pretty inconsistent to me.
