This is actually a little disconcerting, if true (and I looked at the FCC
site, I agree with your assessment, I just hope we're wrong)

_many_ areas in the US only have 850MHz GSM coverage - including my commute
to-from work, IIRC.  That would unfortunately be a deal-breaker for me in
the GTA02.

This is only for the GTA01BV4 though, I assume the GTA02 will have separate
FCC approval.

interesting site - I imagine this is where the initial news on the iphone
leaked... :P
