I don't think that any smartphones on sale in the EU are not quad-band
and 3G capable.  I've had Quad-band 3G smartphones for several years,
they're hardly new.  The iPhone is the personification of the last
generation but one of phones in this respect.

You'll never get much data throughput if you don't get 3G.  EDGE is
okay, but not great, 2G is poor indeed.

It doesn't really seem to have a great deal going for it, to me.
