i am surprised that no one has mentioned this yet since drex posted that FCC link a few posts back, but if you look at the image, don't you see an antenna for wimax 2? Is it possible that this phone is upgradeable to use wimax 2 or able to use wimax 2 overseas?
Although we do not have the actual internal images, but looking at that graphic, you would think they could have place another antenna to make it a fully global world phone.
reading the documentation on the FCC it states the following...
14.1 WIMAX measured maximum RF Output Conducted powers
"This device is capable of two different Channel Bandwidths (5MHz, 10MHz), two zone types (PUSC and Band AMC) and two antennas.
I thought Sprint only does the 5MHz. Plus Wimax 2 is 802.16m standard. the device is described as follows...
This equipment is a WCDMA/GSM transceiver operating in the 850/1900 MHz bands. It also operates in the CDMA 800/1900 bands, employs HSPA/EDGE/GPRS/EVDO data transissions in the networks and contains 2.4 GHz Bluetooth and WiFi functions (part 15.247). It is connected to a computer via a USB connection (Part 15B). It also has a 802.16e WiMAX transceiver operating in the 2.5 GHz band.
Its confusing seeing that Wimax 2 antenna.
Members, want to make this place better, just ask
the staff. Remember, the "No' is always there, you are just looking for the "Yes". and please read the guidelines,
otherwise you may end up in Banlandia
