Take a look at that;
according to this listing, this phone is capable of not only 900Mhz, but also 850Mhz on the same chip!

Is this even possible? I was told there was a problem with doing this; hence why there are like no phones out there that ive seen that can do this?

Is this just an error? or is this really a god phone that i must get so i can use both networks when I feel like it?

According to HTC's site, it's just 850/1900/2100.

Obviously a typo - should be a 900/2100 model and another that does 850/1900/2100

I don't reastically think we'll see any devices doing 850+900 until probably around this time next year. Both Infineon and Qualcomm now have RF chipsets that do both but you have to remember the lead time for handsets is upwards of a year after things such as new chipsets are announced.

there are to types of the HTC Touch Pro, the ones coming out for the rest of the world or the fuze which is on AT&T and if you get the one unlocked, Fuze, then you'll get it working on Telecom, but if you get one from Hongkong, I think it comes with the 900

GSM Arena is so inaccurate at times and yet it seems to be the bastion for so many people. Its nice as an information aggregator, but would be so much better if the info was actually correct.
