It's not just a frequency, it's a whole different chipset, which may be bigger and/or require a bigger battery.

Apple answered that question at the event. They said it would have required unacceptable design compromises. I assume they mostly mean size.

I can tell you from seeing and holding them at CES, that the first LTE phones are definitely on the big side. The ThunderBolt, Revolution, and Droid Bionic are all very thick phones.
