Potentially dumb questions, but why is it obvious that this phone is destined for Cingular / AT&T?
And are we sure that North America will get this phone at all? If you follow the link on the info page to Nokia's product page, the initial page doesn't indicate a North American launch (though subsequent pages sort of do.)
You can tell by the frequency that the phone is slated to work on. ATT/Cingular uses GSM 800/850
Thank you both!
Well, I don't think any other carrier in the americas are going PTT anytime soon, so it's a given that Cingular will carry it. ...
Trust me, it's not a given.
The 6260 will be released in both Eurasian (GSM 900) and Americas (GSM 850) versions. There are plenty of PTT carriers in EMEA and Asia.
Just because the phone has PTT, doesn't mean that only PTT carriers will offer it. Any carrier could offer this phone. If the carrier doesn't offer PTT, then that feature would simply not be operational.
I was just saying that because there's a phone with GSM 850 and PTT for the Americas, that doesn't make it a given that Cingular will carry it. That seemed to be what you were saying before.
