Simply not a fair representation of the difference and availability! I travel often and live in Austin. I have 3G coverage most of the time. I don't usually travel to particularly rural areas, but nonetheless. And the difference between E and 3G on my Blackjack is huge. It is the difference between why bother and pretty quick. that is a big difference, and will be particularly so on a device with such a nice browser. As fast as WiFi? in most cases not, though I have found with my 3G card on my MacBook Air, I am often better using the card than some WiFi spots.I have been warning people too.. about 97% of the country doesn't have 3G coverage, and of those that do have coverage few get more than 2x Edge speed. There's going to be a huge number of people paying more money for the same service thinking they have 3G speeds.
It's sad... but people will flock to it like mad just because it's new.
I'm not buying a new iPhone. My v1 has everything I need at a lower price. Firmware 2.0 will resolve most of my issues. I can't wait for July 11th for my free upgrade.
For those racing out to buy the new 3G, I'm sorry.
