ipad no tmob

One great thing about the Apple iPad would be the device being sold as unlocked, which means you won’t be tied down to any specific carrier. Too bad for T-Mobile fanboys though – the iPad’s 3G modem supports UMTS/HSDPA 850/1900/2100MHz and GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 MHz bands which rules out T-Mobile’s 3G band which runs on 1700MHz. Of course, there is always the fall-back choice of EDGE data via T-Mobile, but why would you settle for less when there are better options out there? For those who point out that T-Mobile also runs on 2100MHz, it seems that UMTS 2100MHz is the European flavor, so compatibility issues are bound to arise.
