Yay! 900MHz is more than 850MHz. Wait. Does it mean I will need a quadband HSDPA if I want to go to Europe, US and Australia?

I was reading the other day about new chipsets running quad band GSM + triband UMTS. This is what we'll probably be seeing in new phones in 12 months time.

It's 850 MHz! EXCELLENT! no more "PCS" 2100MHz wall-absorbed frequencies that drop all the time and have no chance at penetration!
(Voda"Cough"fone's horrid "3g network" comes to mind)

They must have learnt the hard way with 2100MHz and decided that they should do the mix of CDMA IS-95 and WCDMA
