I have also noticed this for other phones such as the Goophone i5s. The chipset on the Wikipedia chart for MediaTek lists them compatible with HSPA, however it is only listed as WCDMA in specs.
I am beginning to think that when these manufacturers/resellers list WCDMA as a feature of a certain phone, they do not mean WCDMA like the slow 384kbps connection, they are using WCDMA referring to 3G in general (HSPA falls under the 3G category of network type). Either that or it is just some sort of translation "error", where "3G" from another language is translated to "WCDMA" in English...
