You make some good points, but it really comes down to is speed vs. cost.

"The iPhone can already get up to 100kbps on the average over EDGE and has promised to deliver us HDSPA (Mbit range).."

100kbpw ... Ouch! If anyone wants an iPhone, Pre, etc; and connectivity is near the top of there list. Wait! WiMax is around the corner, and from what I can tell it's 3Mbps to 20Mbps from the same price.
