wont work on XT, this handset is Quad Band GSM

Many handsets are Quad Band GSM, the Handset needs to support WCDMA or UMTS 850 also.

See the thread on XT Networks and its FAQs to get a better understanding.

- Telstra HTC Touch Pro2 - Energy ROM WM6.5.5 20 Oct/Cyanogen Mod Froyo 2.2 - R.I.P
- AT&T Galaxy S Captivate 16GB on XT (now with brother)
- Samsung Galaxy S2 on XT- Runs ICS 4.0.3 Resurrection Remix 9.2
- Business Hours - Work In The Electricity Industry, After Hours - DJ/Turntablist - Will Scratch Vinyl For Free'
- What's next??? S3?

Moving a little bit off topic but ....

What I'd like some advice on is the necessity for the QWERTY keyboard (and extra bulk) on the M900 (or the Touch Pro2) compared with the F900 (or Diamond2 assuming it comes in WCDMA850). Currently have Treo WX and use the keyboard for email on the run which is nice, but really miss a decent browser screen. Also carry a LG P100 tablet notebook when out of town, so heavy duty keyboard activity is not an issue. Just how good are the soft keyboards on the likes of the M900 and Diamond2 - likely to be as easy as the Treo for small messages?

+1 for the HTC Lancaster. My #1 choice right now is the iPhone but even if it doesn't come to Telecom officially, we can still buy it from Voda and use it no problems so I wouldn't put it on the top of my wishlist. The Lancaster, however, looks sweeeeeeet - same form factor as Voda's exclusive HTC Magic but with a slide-out QWERTY -- awesome.

If Telecom source this, I'd also love them to go with HTC's customised Android software that includes native MS Exchange support. It means they won't be able to brand it with the Google logo but who cares about that. Rogers in Canada have taken this route, I reckon its a win!

I'm interested in QWERTY (non-screen-rotate) GPS Windows Mobile devices for corporate app usage.
That means the Samsung i637 is about the only option besides the Palm Treo Pro already announced. 

Plus Symbol devices like the MC35/55 etc but on 850UMTS

Nice wish, but I dont think there are (m)any dual SIM 3G 850Mhz around, let alone an operator willing to bring one onboard!

Palm Pre. A shame that it won't be available in GSM/WCDMA for a while.

Will the Palm Pre launched on June 6th in the US work on Telecom's existing 027/CDMA network? Why don't Telecom bring those out? I guess it distracts from their XT network launch...
