well I dont know what to think, but the above article doesnt mention the USA as one of the recipients of this jewel. So, will it really come to North America ? I only see Latin America up there !

If you want to get any resonable 3G access in North America the UMTS850 is a must since the majority of the coverage is through the 850MHz band.

X1a - America's

This is the two phones you wanted me to compare? First off I am sorry I was unaware the x1a would be release due the current american economy. But I would like to say according to the information provided there still is no difference between the X1i and X1a. Second when the X1a is release it will be lock to t-mobile and at&t currently there is no risk free way to unlock 3g. I still recommend the X1i because that is the model ment to be distributed unlocked. In conclusion sorry for my ignorance but I don't see a reason to get the X1a. Finally there has been a memory upgrade rumor for the x1. But all we can do is wait and see.

Plus Canadian and American distributor are not going to work through eBay. Cell phone distributor will advertise through eBay. The X1 is also Quad band and runs through a 3G network North America only requires two of these frequencies GSM-850 and GSM-1900 are used in the United States & Canada. So the X1 supports all of the HSDPA and all the GSM frequencies. So therefore stop lying to people about your although rather small knowledge on this phone. You are not a reliable source please /yourself.

how i wish the X1 could come with the same features without windows OS. It would be great if it could support ANDROID but i don't think SE has thought about that. Keeping the fingers crossed let's see how it turns out to be. We wish GSM ARENA do a detail review and test of the X1 as soon as possible.
