Re: "1G" 3G Phones

Technically, GAIT is specific to the marriage of GSM and TDMA, so this isn't "GAIT". One of the big things GAIT did was handle the differences between the two core network types (GSM MAP vs. ANSI-41) - that's not the case here.

Therefore, a better analogy would be any tri-mode CDMA or TDMA phone, which includes both AMPS (analog) and the digital technology. This is more like that. (Same core network type, different air interface.)

This isn't something unique to this phone. Nearly all WCDMA phones for Europe also include GSM. It's pretty much a requirement, since Japan is the only place with enough WCDMA coverage to not need something like GSM for adequate voice coverage.
