They're totally consistent.

Cingular, AFAIK, is mostly just asking manufacturers for GSM 850/1900 phones, and they're getting plenty of them. They're not (to my knowledge) putting an emphasis on global roaming service and demanding quad-band phones.

There also isn't huge demand in the marketplace for quad-band, so the manufacturers aren't putting huge effort into it.

But if Cingular decided they wanted to make a big push on the global roaming thing, and demanded quad-band phones, I think the manufacturers would jump and supply.

So what I said about manufacturers not seeing demand for quad-band, was in the absence of Cingular demanding it.
