    can someone explain this to me?

    why does nokia make 2 versions of a world phone (one that has 900/1800/1900 and another one that has 850/1800/1900) instead of just one that has all 4 bands, like motorola? is it so hard to do?

    Contractual agreements with Tier 1 providers is alot of the problem. If Company X is buying 500,000 handsets a year, they get to dictate a little bit.

    Companies like mine, which are smaller and dont purchase large runs of handsets dont get to decide what features go into the phones. Larger providers can basically get any phone they want with any features they want. They can add Push-to-Talk to a Nokia 6225 if they want to (provided they contract to purchase enough of them). Also, owners of proprietary chipsets do some of the shot calling as well. Qualcomm (a major CDMA player) may demand that no phone have certain other technologies sitting next to their chips on the boards.

    Politics man, politics.
