What frequencies would this radio support? (850,900,1700,1800,1900,2100)
(1700 and 2100 are data only)
What data standards? EDGE? UMTS? HSDPA? and on which of the above

GSM is a standard with a lot of variation and some inconsistency globally. 
I don't like carrying another device, but I think it would add a lot to the
cost (and maybe size) to add a really good GSM chipset with good worldwide
data and voice coverage (and at least 3.5G) - you don't see to many even in
pure phones.
