A couple of much-requested enhancements have been made to the Phone Finder:
- In Extended mode, there is now a "Global Availability" option in addition to the "U.S. Carrier Availability" option. Before, if you searched for "coming soon" phones, you could only find phones that were listed as "tentative" for at least one specific U.S. carrier.
The new Global Availability lets you search for unreleased phones regardless of whether a U.S. carrier has plans to release the phone. It also lets you search for released phones, even if the phone has not yet been released with a U.S. carrier.
- Platform / OS has been added to the Phone Finder. This lets you search for Palm OS phones, Series 60 phones, etc. A lot of people asked for this one. Sorry it took so long to add!
