old3eyes: Don't worry. The chip sets will do both when they arrive .

Qualcomm have just announced 7 bands on 1 chip, but there are some serious challenges to get all the RF on board one chip. Sbiddle sums it up nicely, the fragmentation of LTE frequency use world wide already poses a problem and band harmonisation is a massive issue. NZ is a tech taker in market terms so getting the right band & band plan is a big priority for NZ inc.

If you want an example of this already playing out, you only have to look across to Tasman to the new ipad and Apple losing a court case with the ACMA over labelling a product ¨4G¨ where LTE services are not compatible.

EDIT for poor grammar & spelling

From memory Apple never advertized it as being LTE compatible in Australia .  It was just on the packaging and the ACCC jumped up and down like most bureaucrats do at times like these..

PS It was never a court case..

Well it ended up in a court room so I'd define that a court case!

Kyanar: I'd actually prefer 700, since apparently it can punch through walls easier (and boy do I get crap reception indoors on XT).

I don't seem tohave that problem. I find XT better for me.

Yip, and 700MHz vs 800MHz is going to make no significant difference in terms of signal penetration through walls.
