Considering China Unicom's 3G network hasn't been launched yet, it is unlikely to be as good as any of the 250 currently running HSPA networks around the world (in 150 countries).
Why would they update it? The have nothing to do with that OS. The last time they licensed it for use in one of their handhelds was 2007. They had a fling with Windows Mobile. Now they are completely focussed on Web OS. Palm Desktop doesn't work with Windows Mobile and doesn't make sense with Web OS. So it is useless for their handsets released in the last two years.
iCal is crap. No version of iCal supports authenticated proxy servers. CALDAV breaks. Subscribed calendars break. and now... Exchange ActiveSync breaks. And it's supposed to be used in a workplace... Even funnier is the Bug Reports in Snow Leopard still don't work behind one either. (They never have - so Apple is oblivious to crashes caused by authenticated proxy servers.) Hilarious

Palm OS has long been called Garnet OS and isn't owned by Palm. It's owned by a company called Access. They don't have the rights to use the Palm name. Since 2005 (!) Palm's operating systems of choice are Web OS and formerly Windows Mobile. Palm hasn't released a Garnet OS device since 2007.
This isn't quite true. Listed in the original doc are the transmit frequencies of the phone, which correspond to GSM900, GSM1800 and UMTS2100. The uplink of UMTS 2100 is in the 1900MHz range and the uplink of GSM1800 is in the 1700MHz range, which causes this confusion. It's not a coincidence that China Unicom uses these three standards in its network (GSM900, GSM1800 and UMTS2100) So don't get excited yet about a T-Mobile USA iPhone...
Must be how they got Nike+ which uses ANT to work with a Bluetooth receiver.
Doesn't Apple offer "Advanced Exchange" over there? If you don't want to wait or go to an Apple Store, you pay $30 and they'll send out a new phone and a postage paid label to send the broken one back.
All Android phones on the market have a hardware compass + gps, as well as the high end Nokia S60 phones released in the last year. Both Android and S60 phones have APIs for accessing the compass, GPS and live video feeds that are required for AR.It's cool that iPhone is getting these features too, because of its simplicity in developing software- making AR apps able to be made by more developers and reach a much wider audience.
