ehh, I thought that could happen too, for a while. Then I read a lot more about 3G devices and their power needs. I don't think the batteries in our iPhones are up to 3G demands when you factor in WiFi and BlueTooth radios all running potentially simultaneously.

Now, what they have in store for the EU and Asian models - well, that will be interesting to watch...

Unfortunately it will be several years before we ever get a 3G iPhone in the U.S. because AT&T simply isn't capable of having such a thing anytime soon.
This is mor for Europe right now then anything else.

Don't get excited anytime soon.

AT&T has 3g here in memphis!
and here in Tulsa too, but it definitely isn't everywhere like EDGE is. ATT will have to do a lot of upgrading if Apple intends to roll out 3g anytime soon.

Exactly. Because it will take time, it will be a few years. They can't go selling a 3G capable iPhone if it can only be used in a few states.

AT&T currently offers 3G in 35 states as well as DC and Puerto Rico.

it's not about the number of states where it may be available but about the number of people have access. Its still far from common enough for most of us to get excited about it. I'm in the most populous area in SC, and ATT still won't tell us when we're getting it.
