    The specs for the iPhone list four bands for UTMS/HSDPA/HSUPA. The world droids on VZ lack the 900 MhZ band (not for GSM of course). Anyone know where the 900MhZ is used for UTMS/HSDPA/HSUPA (i.e. where is the iPhone 4S going to be better!)

    Well, I have seen people Google but never quite got the hang of it myself. But that particular link seems to give the level of detail of "Europe" for example. Getting others to Google more, looks like Orange has deployed it in rural France, it's in Finland and Australia. Hard to know if not having it is "significant", I guess it isn't until you are in an area which has it and nothing else.

    Just like 850 UMTS band became essential in North America, especially Canada, 900 MHz UMTS band gets popular in Europe as it has much better penetration than 2100 and needs less towers to cover larger areas compared to original UMTS 2100 European band.
