If the OKTA Touch is really a HTC Vouge in disguise??? is WiFi onboard the same as the GPS seems to be?

I bought an HTC Touch (GSM) from Australia, which runs fine on the Vodafone network.  It is the same form factor as the Okta Touch. It DOES has WiFi on board and works like a charm.

Its strange that the CDMA version does not have this.

WiFi is great, but a 1GB + 1GB plan on my Touch leaves me thinking I do not miss WiFi at all...

Different story for those who are doing everything they can to reduce costs though (I think if I only had a 200MB plan I would really want WiFi too).
