  1. What is the difference between the different bands.

  2. It’s interesting to note that the STA100-6 has been scraped. It was supporting TD-LTE

  3. Just a recap to see where each model goes
    R081 – Aristo STA100-1 NA
    R089 – Astro STA100-2 LTE
    R096 – Anisio STA100-3 Verizon
    R108 – Athos STA100-4 Sprint
    R115 – Aramis STA100-5 (Asia/Americas)
    R130 – Argos/Agosto STA100-6 TD-LTE (China/India/Middle East) *Cancelled*
    R137 – Astro X STA100-9 LTE same as -2, but for China

  4. Will this phone come to South Africa and also will there be a newer bigger size Q model? the Q10 didnt really change from the Bold 9900 :-(

  5. The international version is STA100-2 which is what is sold in my market.
    I wish they included UMTS/HSPA+ Band 4 for the international version so when I travel to the US on business, I can pop in a sim card from Ready Sim, which uses T-Mobile’s network (Band 4). That would make it a real international phone. Nokia’s previous crop of flagships supported this (N8, N9, 808).

  6. STA100-6 is used in South Africa
