Getting it to work on a given geographical region is not "featuritis" ("I
want this and that and that too"). As Jamie Zawinsky once said about
software "Shipping is a feature. Your product should have it". I agree. But
also "getting it to work on all frequencies is a feature, your phone should
have it". ;-)

I bet it comes down to the radio chipset used. The little I know about
smartphones, the "radio" part is more or less an isolated section. The
manufacturer can choose which radio chipset to use. Of course, multi-band
radios cost more.
