Default Quick question about Blackberry Niagara 9630

Please Login to Remove!

I found out through Viigo and an RSS-feed for The Boy Genius Report that, as you may already know, the 9630 is a CDMA device

However also in that same article it says that it also supports 2100Hz UMTS/HSDPA network as well, so would a sim card from a GSM network work in that said device?

Tried googling and searching the forums but found no definitive answer!

If it does work then I could see that being my next phone from my current Bold!

Isn't the 9630 a quad band GSM too?

Well i checked on GSM Arena and the UK UMTS (and i would assume the HSDPA band as well) are 2100Hz

This is the best news i have read for a while!
