    Wifi isn't hugely popular in China. When I was there last winter, I definitely noticed that it was not as ubiquitous as it is in the US.

    I would venture to say that this is true about Asia in general.

    I know here in Japan, finding an open WiFi spot is difficult to do.

    OPEN wifi is the keyword. But there is tons of wifi.

    At any of the Tokyo metro stations, the password is the name of that station written in romaji

    Yes, OPEN is the key word.

    I live outside of Tokyo. Not much WiFi out here.

    Good to know about the Tokyo metro station passwords. Will give that a try next time I am in Tokyo. :)

    WCDMA900 would be very good for Vodafone NZ, and presumably many other carriers with similar networks. Apple may end up including physical Wi-Fi hardware in the device, and just disable it on Chinese units if these 900 MHz phones are also sold in other countries.
