HTC’s Touch Diamond and Raphael don’t like the U.S.

This is a semi-rant, but can someone tell me why of all manufacturers, HTC has started to make devices that are no longer quad-band, and no longer have tri-band HSDPA? They were one of the first to finally get it right and support all bands, even back in the day with the original TyTN. From then on, almost every professional HTC device was quad-band and let us Americanos rock out with HSDPA. Can someone enlighten us? Why has the number one Windows Mobile manufacturer in the world removed such an essential feature from their new lineup? They pulled a Nokia and will start offering localized devices with local GSM bands. Oh yeah, the XPERIA, made by HTC, will be quad-band and offer tri-band UMTS/HSDPA. This, my friends, is not a step in the right direction… 

UPDATE: HTC hit us up and said that size constraints with the Touch Diamond was they weren’t offering a quad-band EDGE and tri-band HSDPA device…
