You can buy the XT version (UMTS 850/1900/2100) already from techbrands
This is the Mk16a version - I'm after the Mk16i for VF network.
I have trawled the web but with no luck - if anyone has any helpful info that would be appreciated
philelvey: Yeah, it says "Compatible with VF" because it supports UMTS 2100, which I understand the majority of VF's 3G coverage is in (someone correct me if wrong), but there are still SOME 900 UMTS 3G, and with my job I travel, so need/want max 3G coverage.
I have been considering a non-keyboard phone. I'm a bit scared to be honest at how i'd go with a soft-keyboard. I would really want to spend a week with a touch-only phone before committing to buying one
I have asked techbrands for an ETA on the 16i, but no reply as yet :-(
Next try is to email Sony Ericsson themselves - who knows.....!
