Wifi in Europe same as US?

I've heard the the Wifi in Europe is different than the Wifi in the US... something about the width of the frequency of the Wifi channels and that it would be un-detectable by an Axim from the US.

Does anyone know if this is true?
If I travel from the US to Europe with my X51, will I not find any Wifi?

Thanks!

North America uses channels 1 to 11 for WiFi while most of the rest of the world (including EU) uses 1 - 13. You will not be able to access any networks using 12 and 13 but most publically accessible networks are aware of this and set their networks to the lower channels.
