maybe they overstocked on the triband chips and have to dispose of them before getting quadband chips. either that or they don't want to piss off hp and palm by making quadband devices that can be used in NA, which I think has the biggest market for hp and palm phones [htc is the manufacturer for the hw65xx and 69xx and the palm Treos right?] anyway i'm just throwing ideas around [I'm out of town for work and it's 2am here and I can't sleep
] and not defending htc though. I too would like to see all devices be quadband that way you can stay in touch with a single device where ever you go [or most of the places in world atleast]
